I think this is both good and bad news. After much last minute work, N was able to get straight As (a 4.0) this quarter. It was a personal goal and I'm proud of him for working so hard to achieve his goal. He is very smart -- I've never doubted that. It shows how far he has come from a year and a half ago when his grades were all Fs. But I also don't want these grades to create continual pressure. It's okay if he doesn't get a 4.0 in the future. He definitely doesn't need anymore perfectionist tendencies.
