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, and went right past them straight to his room, where he quietly closed the door.

This pattern continued ceaselessly until it was time for the first-quarter report card. The boy walked in with his report cardunopenedlaid it on the dinner table and went straight to his room.
