Dear Dish-it: I Have To Go To Summer School

Jun 16, 2010

Dear Dish-it,


I can't believe it! I failed a couple classes and now my parents are making me go to summer school! So basically while they go on vacation with my sister I'll be stuck with my grandma going to school every day with the bad kids. How can I make sure this doesn't wreck my whole summer? And how am I supposed to tell my friends?

Dear bbmme,


Sorry to hear you have to go to summer school. I know it can put a bit of a damper on your supposed-to-be “time off.” But honestly, it’s not that bad - I'm sure it won’t ruin your entire summer.


Second Chance

Summer school’s a bit of a bummer. But if you let it get you down, it will just be like a dark storm cloud that follows you around. If you’re optimistic, things will definitely brighten up for you. Look at summer school as a chance to set things right for yourself. People fail classes all the time. But when you take it again, chances are things will click into place and go over a lot smoother.


Friendly Faces

Summer school is always associated with the “bad” kids. But think about it: you’re not a bad kid. You just failed a class. There are other “good” kids who failed classes too who are probably feeling the same way you are. Just because someone has to go to summer school doesn’t mean they aren’t nice or a good person. Give your summer schoolmates a chance. Who knows, you may make some friends.


Chit Chat

When it comes to telling your buddies, if you don’t make a big deal out of it, they won’t either. Let them know it’s really no biggie because you’ll still have plenty of time to hang out with them. If they do start judging you, maybe they’re not really your friends after all. Just because you made a mistake doesn’t mean you’re dumb. Your real friends respect you and your choices, and they already know you’re a smart kid.

I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.Thank you my friend, maybe fear of being ignored causes this reaction from us but as we know having friends is always good and no one can deny it.I am sure you will find who you are looking for, give yourself some time.It will be fine.
