"Can someone educate me on the ins and outs of online school for a now 7th grade girl? She claims to be really struggling with school. The getting up early, the stress and anxiety around not being good enough, the other students, etc. Bark sent me this alert so she is either working on what she wants to say to me or just knows that Bark will send it to me (haha).
"Hey mum, if you’re reading this, that means I was finally comfortable enough to talk to you about it. I don’t completely understand if you immediately say no, but I’ll respect it…
So, I have been thinking and I really want to do online school. Maybe not this year,but 8th or 9th. Hear me out, I think this could be a really good mental break for me. Though I don’t talk about this kind of stuff with you, I’ve been dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety in school. The pressure that I’m not good enough, pressured into doing things I know are wrong, and it’s just how it goes. This generation doesn’t have the understanding to realize what they’re doing is wrong and I don’t want to be a part of that.
You just want an easy way out of work-
I know what you’re thinking, you don’t want to stay safe or not become more worldly, you just want easy grades! My response to this is no. Online school is no easier than public school. I’ve looked really far into this and I’ve found that most of the time, online studies can even be harder."
