Today Jade has a test that she studied very hard for and felt ready. When it was time to take the test she thought it was easy, and she know she would get a good grade. But when she got her score back she got a 50%, and the rest of the class got 100%. Now Jade feels upset, and is worried what her parents might think.
Hey Jade, why are you upset?
I got a bad grade on the test and I scared of my parents might think.
Jade is having an unhelp thought right now, because her amygdala is overpowering her cortex.
Well I hope you feel better bye.
Maybe I can write a different grade on my test and my parents will never find out.
Jade is having positive and helpful thoughts, because she calmed down.
That might not be the best idea . I am going to talk to my teacher before doing anything I might regret.

Hi Mrs Smith, I was a little confused why I got this grade on my test. I studied very hard and felt ready, so I don't know what went wrong.
Hello, Jade how can I help you?
Thank you so much, that makes me feel so much better!
That is because I made a mistake. You got a 100% on this test, sorry for scaring you.
