From My Kid’s Perspective

trouble in school

Written by My Teenage Daughter – Morgan

Are you having trouble in school?  Do you not do well on school work or get good grades on tests?  Well, that’s how it has been for me.  The past few years have been super hard for me in school.  I haven’t been getting the best grades that I know I could get.  I was having trouble in most of my classes.

But…last quarter I finally go the grades I wanted (ALL A’s & B’s).  I worked so hard for them and then I finally did it!  I made sure I did all my homework and studied hard to tests.  Yeah, I slipped up here and there on a few test scores but since I started off the semester really strong, it didn’t really hurt my grades.

I had a little help from my parents.  They made sure I did everything and checked all my work to be sure it was correct.  I also have a different way of studying.  This really helped me  remember things and made a huge difference in my grades for my tests.  I now get a pen and paper out and read the whole chapter.  Whatever I I thought was important, I would write it down.  I would also review my review practice tests.

Also, I write down what I have for homework so I don’t forget what I need to do.  When I get good grades (As & Bs) I get rewarded with money.  For every A I get on my report card, my parents give me $25 for ever A.  It’s motivating because if I want the money, I have to get the As.

Thirteen Year Old Playing Sports

I Get Frustrated Playing Volleyball

Are you a teenager and sometimes get frustrated and stressed about playing a sport? Well, if you have, then you should keep reading because I’ve gone through it and I can tell you how I feel frustrated sometimes.  I play volleyball and I’m on the TOP 13’s team. I am not gonna say that I’m the best player but I could say I’m pretty good.

I am competing for a spot but there is another girl who is a little better than me.   I know, with hard work, I can win the position. I have trouble sometimes with the skills. I get frustrated every single time and that brings me down and that frustration spreads to my team and makes them down.

When you make a mistake, don’t get frustrated. Think about the next play and shake it off. I’ve learned so much from many different people to do that and now I do it and it actually works.
