Teens and tweenies feeling fab

My lovely daughters, Kamarane and Morggan, will be sharing regular thoughts about life as a teen and tweenie. We’d love to hear your thoughts – either here, through the newsletter or on Facebook.

Morggan – Teenage Feeling Fab

“There are so many pressures for teenagers,” says Morggan. “Sometimes we feel misunderstood, we feel judged and we feel at times that we are guilty when there is nothing to be guilty about.”

“I’m hoping to provide a platform for us to talk and share ideas through the Feeling Fab community. It could be about school, relationships, body consciousness, church, anything really. The platform is yours to use.

Looking forward to hearing from you!”

 

KamaraneKamarane: Tweenie feeling fab

“With the SATs very near some of my friends in my class are a little bit nervous especially if there is a subject we are not too happy about,” says Kamarane.

“I like maths but sometimes I get confused I find I have to really concentrate and not rush my work. Mum has told me to take my time, read the questions through before I answer to make sure I understand before I start writing. I have found this really useful, and I notice when I do that I get more answers right, and it feels better too.

“I have found that it is best to take your time and get the questions you try right, than to rush and not get as many right.

“Good luck with your SATs if you are taking them.

“Next month we can share our feelings about starting High School.”

    It feels like a million years ago now, but when I was 11 at school in Trinidad, we had exams to do to be able to get into the High School of our choice. The results of the exams were published on the national paper, pages and pages, school by school, so everybody knew how well or badly you may have done.. the same was done when you took O’Levels and A’Levels. I think it made me work harder to achieve my goals… but I can see how it could be stressful and embarrassing to others… My advice .. find out your style of learning at an early age (lots of articles on the internet) and you will find learning pleasurable rather than stressful.. and you will see the benefits, the answers to ‘why are we learning this?’
