They rebel and end up in Mc Donald's.

At that point in their life they kind of do though. It's later that decides if they actually end up meaning anything. I mean, you can still achieve your dreams even if you have good grades can't you? I mean, if they hammer in that you're doomed if you don't get exceptional grades then that causes depression (somtimes suicide), stress, rebellion and also, in my opinion, worse grades then they are going too far but when it's exam time grades become the only thing that matters for the time being.

Put more focus on the schools that teach to a grade number instead of real world problems.

grades don't get you jobs or make you happy or make friends or even make you smart, living life together with those you love makes you happy

Depends on what they learn from the lesson. I'd still do what i like. For someone to get affected enough to end up going downhill, that person is just weak. They will either inspire you or they won't and you have your own aspirations.

Parents are humans. Humans often times don't like to deal with complicated things. If you only have to have your kid do one thing, then your own mental energy is spared.

Thus, kids only having to do one thing makes parenting much easier.

They need to beat some sense into their children.

My dad was like this. I spent my childhood studying and doing extra curricular activities only if they would improve my chances of getting into a better school.

So when my parents ask me why I'm still going to conventions at my age, I just remind them that I never had a childhood.

Trust me, grades matter more than anything. You could be the next born leader to WWIII but if you got bad grades people around you just tend to ignore any request, government, private etc. I am in colleague, people still cheat in exams I am seen professionals cheating jet I am proud of my 60 D or C etc..
I have seen one of the smarter girl, (she was pretty by the way in school) in class cheat ,just because she wont drop social status.
One of the smatter girl in my class (colleague) got an 60 -D in civil law and almost enter in depression yet I tell she it was a honest grade (I got 59 lol)
Even a man with 11 different degree titles.
I hold my grades with my knowledge, I hope people do so, yet I got rejected a scholarship because normal grades were not enough, and those who cheat get them.

Many kids who are taught this are much too hard on themselves. They have a sense of inadequacy, and that their best is never good enough unless it's 100%. This has driven a lot of people, including me, into thinking we're worthless idiots just cause we can't get an A. I think it's related to the concept that you have to contribute to society somehow, that just doing your job isn't good enough.
Isn't it better if kids just try their best without such an extreme fear of failure?
