What every seven year old deserves

"... I always did like school, jus' seem like school never did like me... Secon' grade they laffs at HOW I talk. So I stop talking. What for? Secon' thas when "Imma joke" start. When I sit down boyz make fart sounds wif they mouf like it's me fartin'. When I git up they snort snort hog grunt sounds. So I jus'stop getting up (PUSH, 36)."

Every child deserves to feel safe, loved and nurtured in school. What do you think every child deserves?

You deserve the world at your feet. You deserve to be treated the way you treat others, and that’s as if they were your best friend. The teachers should treat you as an individual, not just as a whole because everyone is different and they learn different as well. You should be able to go as far as you want to go, no matter the circumstance. The teachers should be behind you 100 percent.
They should tell you that you can do anything that you want to do and that the sky is the limit. They should make things happen for each and everyone of you. Separately, they should show each of you the way to go to be whatever you want to be. Meaning, if you want to be a librarian, they should take you to meet the librarian, so that she can show you just how easy your dreams can be made true.

See now you are in the first grade and first impressions are everything. You can’t act the same way at home and at school. School is not play time it is a time to learn. Your teacher is there to teach you and help you with any questions that you may have. You must use this time to take in as much as you can. Play time is on the playground not in the class room. I know you have times that you get mad but you have to learn to control yourself. Try your best at all times and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Hey Karizma I don’t know your struggle in Elementary School but I hope it’s going okay. Just giving you a heads up on how many children go through bad experiences in their first years of school. I hope u don’t go through these things. You are such a smart little girl and could set a good example for your friends and classmates. Your teacher may not be the best teacher but as long as she cares for your learning, it doesn’t matter. Don’t be a bully to your peers because you would never know what bad things they go through. Be yourself and be a child and stay a child. Have fun with your life never grow up too fast!!.. I love you.

I feel like every 7 year old shouldn’t go through any type of struggled and you shouldn’t be having to face any types of critism. I really don’t remember when I was seven what had happen. But I do know that I deserved to be treated equally and shouldn’t be having any problems. Some seven year olds are mostly scared to speak there minds on what right and wrong. I hope that in a classroom teachers should understand that there students are only kids. They should be able to be trated lik kids and working there way up to being teens. Teacher should be able to give candy or not necessary candy but some kind of reward to the students letting them know that they did a good job in class. Let them know that there good work was took in consideration. The teacher should be understanding and really help the students be great individuals.

7's your age, you're in first grade. You should be happy to be in school with your peers. This is the time your brain shoud be sucking in a lot more of important things. Behave in school and know that this is your first step in getting a real education. you should receive all the loving and caring that you need. Write your numbers and spel your name and when its ap time enjoy your sleep. Be good in clas so your classmates can look at you like a super hero. If the teacher gives you any problems, don't hit her. Just tell your mom so she can deal with it. Eat your food, and do not throw it up. Be good in class and you will get candy and prizes.

What I think every seven year old deserves is a chance to be a child and act like a child. What I mean by that is to play outside, go to school, go to sleep overs, hang out with your friends on the weekend. Basically not trying to grow up so fast. Also have respect for the ones trying to help you.

I think they deserves respect from all their teachers. Like someone they can always talk to so they want feel alone. And have like a good friend cause I remember when I was young I thought I didn’t have anyone to talk to at school I felt alone. So I think every seven year old needs a teacher mom not saying like a mother do everything for you just for you to be there so have by your side so you want alone.!

If you knew me you would know...

"... There has always been something wrong wif the tesses. The tesses paint a picture of me an' my muver-my whole family, we more than dumb, we invisible. (PUSH, 31)"

In the story PUSH Precious talks about hating to take tests and hating to have files written about her by people who don't really know who she is. We agreed that people often judge us by things that have little to nothing to do with who we are as people and felt the need to tell yall a lil about ourselves.

I you knew me you would know...

If you ever knew me you would know how much I struggle ever day. Certain things in my life I cant handle emotional and sometimes it takes a physical toll. It got so bad one night at like 2 o’clock in the morning I cut off my hair, 3 inches off the side, 2 inches off the rest except for the middle. It’s very short to me now but I think I just needed a fresh start. It took a lot off of school its like I try to do well in school but when it comes down to home life it takes away from my focus. I wish people could see the pain I feel inside sometimes.

If u knew me you would know that I am 17 years old born April 8,1992 born on my mama birthday so you I am very spoiled if u didn’t know it already. love to party, go out have fun, chill wit my family and boyfriend, shopping, I am a very shy person but also a nice that people love to be around. But if u push me to the limit I can me the worst person you would wont to meet. Some people say that I have the worst attitude that I teen can have cause I don’t take nothing from nobody. If people let you run over them they would but I am not that type. You have to get respect to receive respect from me that’s how I feel. I wont my own business a clothing shop and beauty salon in the back named “Stlyez 2 Da Limit & Baquette”. But to get to that level I will need to finish high graduate go to college for business, get my business license. Then after that then work on my shop stuff like find a building the supplies and much more. That’s a little about me if you didn’t already know about me.

If you Knew me you would know that I am a person that is kind hearted and that like to express there self in ways to know that I am somebody and not to judge that somebody even if I am that somebody. Also I have feelings to, I mean I wouldn’t use them as excuses if you would really understand me and part were I come from I mean just give me a chance I mean I can prove to you I mean I don’t have to but I choose to I mean to show you I can actually achieve. To make you approve and make you think different to show you people can change I mean even you. To make you want to change your opinions to make your expressions and thoughts different. So if you know me I mean you would fall in love with me for me and not what I can do.

If you knew me you would know that I’m 18 years old. I was born October 20, 1991. I’m currently in high school and a senior getting ready to graduate. My personality is really bright and at sometimes I tend to be shy about things. I want to be a singer and song writer and produce my own music. I love to shop I buy shoes and clothes. I’m a very sensitive girl about some topics. I’m a real nice girl and am real determined to things in life to achieve my goal. Every time I write songs it’s when I feel some kind emotions. Like if I’m going through something that they I write a song about the type emotions I’m feeling. I love to satisfy others and their needs first before I can satisfy my own. I really need to work on that. I never like to be put on the spot by teachers or anybody else. I get embarrassed sometimes by that. I really want to pursue my singing and song writer career.
