  Case: Their kids play sports
You are a high school teacher, and Caleb Rushmore is the star running back for the football team. He sleeps in class and is extremely focused on football, and is, in fact, counting on a football scholarship. When his parents come in to conference, their main concern is his sports participation and eligibility. How would you handle this situation?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I would acknowledge that they do have a talented son, but politely remind them that he is in school to learn. Also that is important for him to keep his grades up for him to be eligible to play. If his grades are not up to pair he is not able to participate in sports till they are raised. Then go over the areas that he needs improvement. I would then ask the parents if they needed me to talk with him about how to balance homework and sports.

Comments: I agree that it is important to let the parents know that they have a talent son but in order to get a scholarship he needs good grades. I think it is a great idea to work with the parents and show them the areas he needs to work on.
