I am listing some items that I believe would have helped me in Middle School. These are just some of my ideas looking back over the years since I have been in Middle School but I hope that some of them can be helpful to you and YOUR child at this time in their life
It is ok to be sad
That teachers are people too. I remember I had a teacher I did not care for and complained to my mother but instead of offering to change teachers for me she said, “Listen, nobody is going to love you as I do, go to class, do your best and next you will have a teacher you like.” End of story-I went to class, did my best, and the next year I had a teacher I liked.
Cut everyone some slack. Since we never know what is really going on in someone else’s life, it is best to cut everyone some slack.
