RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

6 Brainwashed kids

Dude, right now on Discovery health, there are these 6 kids (All with one mom and dad), and...damn, they're homeschooled, which at first you'd think is good, but they're parents...oh, god. They've got them on camera talking about liking boys and girls n shit (They're all maybe 11 or 12). It's fucked up. And the parents are watching over them like hawks. It's fucked up. They're picking into their lives, and I can tell you that at that age, you're fucking confused, not knowing what's wrong with you, and the very LAST thing you need is a bunch of parents picking apart your fucking lives, like filming you looking at girls in "wrong and weird ways", because at that age and time, you need to be left alone.

Dude, I need to write a thing about being 13 or somthing.

Parents: We're just-

It took me a while to find out what you posted. However, I did.

Does it bother me? These questions get uncooperative responses from people at that age. The combination of forcing a person to cooperate and being in front of a camera creates ultra-stress. I didn't see the show and I do not have the ability to ask the kids what they felt when they were being filmed answering questions about personal matters, so I do not know if their cooperation was forced and if they didn't enjoyed it. But if it was unwanted then it would cause a lot of discomfort and stress.
