The example given translates the imperfect tense as the present, and has a spurious apostrophe:

Die schlechten Noten ihrer Tochter bereiteten den Eltern Kopfzerbrechen.
Their daughter's poor grades are giving her parent's a headache.
Should be
Die schlechten Noten ihrer Tochter bereiteten den Eltern Kopfzerbrechen.
Their daughter's poor grades were giving her parents a headache.
