Actually, Mr. Cull, I was wondering if I could stay after tomorrow because I am really struggling on the geometric proofs.
There are going to be times where I don't understand everything. I don't know why everyone is so concerned.
I can't believe you don't understand geometric proofs. I think they are so easy!
Here we go again! Why can't I ever just be confused?
Hey Mikayla! I hear you are struggling in Geometry!
Mom, I am upset! I don't feel like being happy right now!
In school, Mikayla is one who always excels. She is known to achieve and pick up on new material quickly. However, while she strives to be a perfectionist, there are times when she truly does need extra help.
Honey, you should smile! I don't like to see you upset. You are too hardworking to be so down on yourself.
When Mikayla's peers become aware that she is having a difficult time, they tend to really focus on that idea. It is almost as if they are in complete shock, especially if they do well in the area she struggles in.
DAD! Stop, they went to the mall without me . They did not forget to ask!
Sweetie, I'm sure your friends did not leave you out on purpose. Maybe they just forgot.
Sometimes, Mikayla wishes that her peers would understand that it is okay for her to need extra help. She wants it to be acceptable for her to not always be proper and perfect.
Why can't they ever just let me be upset without always bothering me and trying to make me smile.
Mikayla's parents are very proud of all her achievements and only want to see her happy. As a result, they sometimes want her to brush all her sadness away and just want to see her smile.
Sometimes, when Mikayla is upset about something, her parents try to overcompensate and create scenarios that make her situation seem better.
Mikayla wishes that her parents would understand that it is okay for her to be upset. She knows that they love her, but sometimes, she just needs time to herself to let things go on her own. It isn't always easy for her to let things go.
