This elementary school, presumably from the Dar-e-Arqam private school network in Pakistan, had a great reminder to parents the night before students embarked on their 1st term exams: not everyone is going to be great at everything, and that's ok.

And to think all the letters sent to my home were to have my parents sign off on my failures.

I know you all are anxious for your child's best progress, but please do remember that every individual cannot be the master of all areas. Kindly keep the following points in your mind before you assess your child's intelligence.

There is a Quran learner, who's chemisty marks won't matter.

There is an artist who doesn't need to understand Math.

There is an entrepeneur, who can't be the mastory of History or English Listerature

There is a sports person, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics

If your child shows good results in all subjects, that's great. But if he/she doesn't than please be humble with them and don't take away their self-confidence and dignity. One exam or low marks won't take away their dreams or talent.

Kindly, do not think that doctor and engineers are the only happy people in the world.

Where was this compassion when we were in school? This letter speaks to all the successful humans our there who at one point had to struggle with not being a fast reader or a "math person." Hopefully, parents will take the sentiments to heart and spare they're children the ego-bruising punishments, at least until they're ready to burn out in high school.
