Hello, im in 10th grade. Im having problems with school, almost forever. Im unable to pay attention in class, I get bad grades, and lack confidence in almost everything I do. Im in SPED (Special Education) math and English class, due to my poor grades, and in normal classes for everything else. Im not shore why im not a good student. I eat healthy, exercise, and get a decent amount of sleep. Both my parents did well in school, even my brother.Everytime I try paying attention in class, everything just goes out the other ear, or becomes a blur seconds later. Heck, I even have a hard time remember simple words. It flabbergasts me. I have high goals in life, and for me to achieve them I have to do a lot better in school. I NEED HELP! Some might say stuying helps everything which I believe it does... but im unable to even study anymore. Everytime I try I either get to board out my wits to keep going... or if I do for long period of time, I forgot everything the next day. Thanks for any help.
you`re lacking motivation
I definetly do not want to try and get you to think you may have something you don't. But some of the things you described trace back to A.D.D. Again, I'm probably wrong, but it's always a possibility. I'm also in 10th grade and have the same type of trouble. Are you just not interested in the classes you're taking or do you make a genuine attempt to try and pay attention?
And it's you I see
But you don't see me.
You have to find a way of learning what you need to know that works for you. Forcing yourself to concentrate and think clearly in class is probably the best way. Remind yourself every time you start to think of something else, and keep yourself focused on either the task or nothing at all (this worked for me).If that doesn't work, get help from the teacher, a tutor, your parents, or whatever else you can think of. Try studying in a different place than you usually do - where do you usually find yourself the calmest and most attentive? I have mild ADD, it used to be worse in late elementary and junior high school. Concentrating isn't an impossibly task, you can do it
