Sage Advice from Someone Who Understands Kid Problems and Concerns

 

 Dear Henrietta,
   Kids are making fun of me.  What should I do?
Signed,
Teased 

Dear Teased,
   Words can be hurtful.  If they keep doing it, get your friends and walk away. You can stand up to the teaser and tell him that you feel bad about what he said to you and to leave you alone.  Tell a teacher or a parent so that he or she can talk to the teaser.
:) Henrietta

 

Dear Henrietta,
   At recess, kids are excluding other kids.  What can we do?
Signed,
Left Out and Lonely

 

Dear Left Out and Lonely,
   I feel that it should not happen.  It hurts people's feelings.  I feel upset if I see someone being excluded.  Why not play a game where everyone is included?  You can play some of the games that you learned in Project Adventure.  If you see someone sitting on the sidelines, be a good friend and invite them to play.
:) Henrietta

 

Dear Henrietta,
   The older kids do not let me play soccer with them.  What should I do to deal with this?
Signed,
Out of the Game

 

Dear Out of the Game,
   I would try to ask them nicely again if you can play.  If they say "No," I would get my friends together and play our own game.  Everyone can be a good friend.
:) Henrietta

 

Dear Henrietta,
   I am a smart kid and I study hard, but whenever I take a test I get so nervous and upset. What should I do?
Signed,
Stressed Out

Dear Stressed Out,
   Try bringing a stress ball to relieve some of the tension. Ask your teacher if you can move to a different location during the test where you won't be distracted.  Remember it's only a test and as long as you try your best, everything will be okay.

Dear Henrietta,
   I love sports, but I'm just not good at them. What should I do?
Signed,
The Strike Out Kid

Dear Strike Out Kid,
   When you get home from school, ask someone from your family or a friend to help you practice. Just keep practicing every day and you'll build up your skills. If you're not good at baseball, give soccer a try. Keep trying different sports until you find one that you can play.
:)Henrietta

 

Dear Henrietta,
   I'm having trouble focusing on my schoolwork and studying? What should I do?
Signed,
I'd Rather Be Fishing

 

Dear I'd Rather Be Fishing,
   Here are my super study tips.  Find a special study spot where you won't get distracted. Go somewhere quiet, like the library. Make sure if you don't understand something, you ask your teacher for help. Ask a friend to help
you study or start a study group with a couple of friends and you can go over the information together.

Dear Henrietta,
   On the bus, I saw someone push and tackle a boy. How should I handle this situation?
Signed,
Eye Witness

Dear Eye Witness,
   I would tell the tackler, "Be safe. Don't do that. You could hurt him." I would also tell the bus driver what happened.
:) Henrietta

 

 

Dear Henrietta,

People are calling me names like chicken head and it really hurts my feelings.  I do not think that they notice they are hurting my feelings. What should I do?

From,
Upset iin UGL

 

Dear Upset In UGL,

If people are calling you names, do not keep it inside!  Whether it is at recess or during math, it should never happen! Plus sometimes people do not even mean to hurt your feelings or call you names. Sometimes they're just playing around and they just call you a name. So before you tell an adult, talk to the person. Tell  them that when they call you chicken head, it hurts your feelings. If that does not work, then you could go and talk to an adult. But don’t make that person feel bad! I hope these tips help!

 :) Henrietta
