    We do not know the full story.
    However the first thing to figure out is why the child failed 3 classes.
    It could be because of bad parenting. Children from families with problems seldom do well in school.
    Could be dyslexia? Drugs? who can say at this point, but demoralizing a child seldom helps the situation.

    It didn't seem like the child was demoralized, but rather encouraged to do better.
    Like the guy who shot his daughter's laptop, there is no doubt more to the story.

    The laptop had done nothing to him.
    Poor laptop...
    The problem was his lack of good parenting skills or the problem would not have escalated to a shooting in the family.

    Rather the same as you suggested for the sign on the boy?

    Pretty much.
    Poor parenting is probably the biggest problem facing the USA and is linked to the root of many of our current problems.

    Yeah, try to find the reason why the child failed then act accordingly.
