Mrs.M…I’m with ya honey!
Don’t be embarrassed about your mom calling you. If it works then it’s a good thing.
When I was your age, my mother had just died which threw me REALLY off kilter. I couldn’t stay focused on anything and was sent to EAP for my tardiness as well. It was my last ditch before getting fired (which I didn’t.) It helped for a little while but not for long.
At that time I had also gotten a note home from my daughters kindergarten teacher telling me that I wasn’t a good mom because I would forget to send field trip money to school…can you imagine?
And the icing…I bounced a check for 50.00 at the grocery store and forgot about it. When I went to the courthouse to pay the fine, I was really going for my court date!!! I got a 90 day jail sentence which was suspended and I was on probation for 2 years!!!
Whatever works!!!!! Use anything that you can to your advantage. If the people in your life want to help you, let them.
And cherish that call you get from your mommy every morning:)REPORT ABUSE
