Pressure for examinations and scores
We are often told that “scores are not important, knowledge is important” that is true in life, while teen school always suffers from score pressure. Every time the exam season arrives, the score has become a terrible obsession for teenagers. Each teen gets a math-theorem outline with hundreds of lessons from easy to difficult. Three subjects of history and history are even more horrified with a thicker outline than the textbooks that teen learns during the whole period. Not to mention the Students, Citizens Education, Foreign Languages … with knowledge content stretching from the beginning of the year until the exam. Facing “the sea” teen knowledge chooses to take extra classes. One day, 24 hours, there are teenagers studying up to 4 shifts, leaving the house at 6am and arriving at home at 10pm.
The heartless joke
Living in a collective if teen makes mistakes, bad things … will surely be isolated and unable to integrate. However, if the teen has tried to change but is not accepted, going to class will become a nightmare. Jake, a friend of mine shared: “Before I switched classes, I didn’t think that being fat was a problem, it seemed like I became the focus for people to joke around. They often call me fat, … even pigs, … regardless of what name they think is suitable for their appearance. I like a boyfriend in the class, of course I dare not express, just stealthily give him gifts, somehow he knows, throwing the gift package for fear of losing his face. Class became an obsession, I lost weight so badly that I had to be hospitalized and went to the hospital and immediately transferred classes.
“Upper legs, lowering your forearms”
The words tease make teen hurt about psychological but not terrible by the brutal blow that teen received from his friends. There are teenagers who go to school but have to hide and hide because they are afraid of being beaten, they go early in the morning, so it is late but almost every day, there are at least some bruises. Tr shared: “I was beaten up by my classmate and got a few blows from her sister just because her boyfriend glanced at me”.
For very small reasons, teenagers are willing to “lower their legs, lower their forearms” with their friends. Last time, many of the school violence clips posted online made many people angry. School intervention, parent protection, society condemned vehemently but it seems that school violence is still a painful problem and becomes a teen obsession.
Going to school is everyone’s right but with a lot of pressure. So, instead of heartless jokes, a brutal beat, … let’s treat your friends well. If you feel too stressed, please share with your parents, teachers, etc. We have the right to speak our own thoughts.
