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.

what is this i dont even

There is no particular day of the year where kids get appreciated for being kids.

Although tbh I'd prefer if they got rid of mothers/fathers day instead of adding one for kids.

That would be like having a day to appreciate people who can breathe. Mothers is for kids to appreciate mothers for feeding them and cleaning their stuff and raising them without anything but a thank you or not even that. Think about it. On mothers day you make breakfast for your mom and then buy her a gift. But every other day your mom makes you breakfast or lunch or dinner and usually buys you things.

They should rename it to "Good Mothers Day" so that people who spawn kids and then don't actually take care of them properly don't get any undeserved appreciation.

Nobody should get holidays. They lose their value once more begin to pop up.

Why should kids get a day? Everyone's a kid just by being born, but you have to actually do something to be a mom and dad. No offense. What are we going to have next? Sentience Day?

Value, meaning their purpose; their uniqueness. And it argues for favoritism (It's the reason this thread was made.) It's for the same reason having a Latino history month, White history month, and Asian history month and Black history month is overkill.

Why should mothers and fathers get a day? Spawning a kid doesn't require any special skill or level of intelligence, and it seems most people do it eventually anyway.

Well, I've never been able to copulate with anybody, so I'm assuming it's harder than it seems on the surface.

Because the unspoken expectation is that you need to be a good mother for Mother's Day, someone who raised her kid well etc, rather than simply being the biological mother of a child.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

All these holidays are stupid.

If you love your mom and dad, be nice to them and give them shit. That we need to make a holiday so the people that make the gifts for this type of thing can get more money is ridiculous.

No, this is Patrick.
