Children as they reach primary school stage, have a lot of interaction with the family, friends and teachers. They form their own views and priorities. Homework, serious studies and tuitions are often frowned or done with a bit of hesitation. When it comes to studies and marks, many parents often are more stressed than the child. Without thinking along with a biased assumption that their child has not performed well, start shouting at them at home or in front of their friends. This is a major setback for the child who has to suffer the humiliation in front of students and other elders. Such children are often the target for fun by the people who have seen them get scolded. We should try and see why the child is not able to score, is it inadequate teaching, not able to understand etc and then talk to the child in a positive manner, the child surely will perform better. Being harsh just makes them sad and next time the child would try and aviod the class test results or start lying to escape another humiliation.
