I've been cutting classes.. - May 12th 2010, 01:13 PM

I know this is going to sound really stupid and easy to solve, but it's not.

So here I go, I'm in the 12th grade in highschool and I will be attending college in September. Recetly though I started cutting class, I cut class as much as 5 times a week, ( I hve 3 classes per day, Mon - Fri)

I know this sounds like an easy fix - " Just go to class "
but it's really difficult, my parents are not aware, and they would kill me!

I am now failing 1 of my classes which will prevent me from going to college next year.

Please help me.

Thank you.

Hey I had this problem when I was in my last year of school too. (for the short time i was in that is)
i just couldnt stand being around other people in class so i wandered around school by myself for the best part of 2 months and missed most of my classes.

I got in so much trouble at school when I was caught and that just made me skip my lessons even more.

do you know why you dont like going to you classes?

i know how hard it can be to break the cycle of skipping class but you got to. why dont you try to ease yourself back into going again. just try one class more a day at first and gradually build it up?

do you have like a learning mentor or guidance counsellor at you school?
they could help you to make reasonable targets to getting back into your classes.

take care

Well, up until this year I never skipped a class in my life,
and I hate to say it, but I think I keep skipping becaue it's so damn easy.

Another thing, I feel like Ive dug myself so deep ( currently 30% in my chemistry class, that there is no hope for me to pass)

It truly is a bad habit, abd it doesn't help that I drive to school, it makes it all the more tempting to just hop in my car and leave.

At my school, when you turn 18 you can write your own notes. So yeah, I definitely took advantage of that as soon as I hit 18, I personally wish I didn't. Skipping classes, really effected my future, I failed my only class because of that. So my advice, try as hard as you can to go to class. I know, easier said then done, but if its friends that are making you skip it, then maybe choose other friends, that will help you make the right decision. Good luck.
