Parents: Would you really be proud of your child receiving a B+ in school?
I am absolutely perplexed by a Stouffer’s commercial that just aired. The commercial stated, “Studies show that children who eat dinner with their families tend to get better grades.” It then shows a teenage boy holding a test with a B+ grade and smiling. And the parents are smiling…
What in the hell? Does anyone really consider B+ to be an “good” grade? I can’t even imagine how my parents would have reacted if I had ever come home with a B+. B+ should not be considered commendable, whether you are in grade school, high school, college, or grad school. It indicates, “You performed slightly better than mediocre.”
What’s going on with this Stouffer’s commercial?
