    I think that this was a good topic to talk about because our home life does impact our school life. For example over spring break last year I went to Tennessee for my moms wedding and when I came back to school, I showed the pictures of the wedding to my friends and it was a exciting experience to go to. In this case I had a positive experience which helped me for success.

    yes there definitely is a lack of parental support and a need for the schools administration to find ways to help their students succeed. In today’s society i have found that more adults are blind to the stress and weight of some responsibilities outside of school. Specifically i have a friend who takes care of her 6 other siblings and it is hard for her to succeed in school and life. she has tried to ask help from adults and school teachers, but they just seem to ignore it.

    i believe a lot of conflicts start at home, so to talk about it on t.v takes courage, i know when i have a fight with my parents i that i take it out on the teachers or students that go to my school. i believe if we talk about it we may be able to come up with a solution to help get our angry out, like without getting in trouble. i know sometimes i don’t study cause I’m so mad and i fail a test, but i think that we just need a good way to vent.
