Making good grades and attitudes
Posted on: 05/05/2003
How can i do really good in school and make good grades and stop getting an additude with people. When poeple take advantage of me what do i do? thank you.
First of all, find out what you need to do to improve your performance at school. For instance is your attitude getting in the way? Do you need some extra help in a particular subject or do you need to learn better study skills? Check with your teachers or a school counselor to get some advice on how to improve your academics. It's easy to get an attitude if you feel people are taking advantage of you. You can learn to express your feelings in ways that may help resolve the problem or perhaps just stay away from people you feel are not being fair to you. It would be a good idea to discuss the specific situation with a trusted adult who could help advise you.
