Sometimes all that a child needs to become the student their parents dream them to be is the right encouragement, and this young man proved it to his parents after they enrolled him in a new school.

The innocence of children frequently serves as inspiration for some of the funniest jokes out there, as we as adults are baffled every time we get to see the world with the logic of the younger ones.

A ten-year-old boy was failing math. His parents tried everything from tutors to hypnosis, but to no avail. Finally, at the insistence of a family friend, they decided to enroll their son in a private Catholic school.

After the first day, the boy’s parents were surprised when he walked in after school with a stern, focused, and very determined expression on his face.

He went straight past them, right to his room and quietly closed the door. For nearly two hours he toiled away in his room with math books strewn about his desk and the surrounding floor.

He emerged long enough to eat, and after quickly cleaning his plate, went straight back to his room, closed the door and worked feverishly at his studies until bedtime.

This pattern of behavior continued until it was time for the first quarter’s report card. The boy walked in with it unopened, laid it on the dinner table and went straight to his room.

Cautiously, his mother opened it and, to her amazement, she saw a large red "A" under the subject of Math. Overjoyed, she and her husband rushed into their son’s room, thrilled at his remarkable progress.

“Was it the nuns that did it?” the father asked. The boy shook his head and said, “No.”

“Was it the one-to-one tutoring? The peer-mentoring?” “No.” “The textbooks? The teachers? The curriculum?” “No”, kept saying the son.

After his parents tried in vain to guess what has operated such a remarkable change in his study habits, the boy revealed his true motivation:

“On that first day, when I walked in the front door and saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I KNEW they were serious!"
