Who here has felt the cold chains of REJECTION!!! DENIAL!! and held back a grade like I have??
I was held back/chained down in kinder because they said I wasn't grown up enough.
Then they tried that again in 2nd grade, but my parents said NO and they had no other choice to let me continue.
Since then I felt like I wasn't an intelligent intellectual compared to everyone else my age..but recently I've discovered I'm actually smarter than most..HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE??? Is it because I stood back and had more time to polish up on those essential skills I lacked many years ago? The world may never know....

xD so dramatic nahhh yo I was held back in kinder I feel no dumber nor better than the people who are my age =]

if you are gonna share please don't be down on yourself and make people feel sorry for you..pity is not a heartwarmer juss a heatingpad that'll eventually lose it's warmth and that sad cold stale feeling you have will come back..instead feel good about yourself trust me it works..if not umm you can always go get some dooby snacks xD jk thats bad

I was held back in the first grade for being wierd.

I wish I was joking. I had the highest grades in the class and socialized well... I just sat on the floor a lot and colored.

I'm an art student now, still wierd... I think that's my inner self giving a big 'screw you' to whomever made the decision to hold me back.

Oh, plus I wasn't big enough for sports. I still hate sports. I don't see a point in it.

I was held back in grade one. I moved to a new school was bully and maybe because of that I didn't speak much and was held back.

I think it should be a crime to hold someone back a grade when they are in grade K-3. Especially if it is left to only the teacher's decision. I think the person consider for being held back in those grades should be interview by a psychiatrist. You don't know teachers, maybe they have a thing with power and like to hold people back a grade. Just like some teachers have a thing for their students. Forrest Gump wasn't held back until he was much older.

I don't mind if they bump someone a year or two. Cause then they can failed a year or two and not get left behind.

I get so pissed off in class.

It's a waste of freaking time, half the teachers are rednecks or completely insane, and they never stop talking.

My school doesn't even teach the things I want to learn.

Other than that, the kids at my school are awesome, so it's not all bad.

College will have what I want...


hope you enjoy life after schooling because half the jobs out there your boss will be the exact same
