Have you ever been afraid to ask for help?
I have and it was the reason I started failing a class. As a result my parents brought up the idea of tutoring. My mind instant thought “Does this make me stupid?”. I have been in advanced classes for years and always get A’s in school. I couldn’t understand why this class was so hard for me. It stressed me out and I hated how I felt like the dumbest kid in the class.
But when I started going to the teacher and asking for help and I got help from my family, things started to change for the better. Asking for help does not mean you are stupid or dump it just means you are corageous enough to ask for help. People around you want to make sure you succeed in your life, If you are not surrounded by these types of people you are with the people who would rather tear you down then lift you up.
PS to Parents
If you kids ask for help don’t turn them away, please listen to what they need. Turning them away only stresses them out more. In this stressful time kids need to know people will be there for them.
