Report card comments I received in 5th grade have been an excellent way to see where I struggled the most. In the second column: “Nicole is doing very well. At times, she has a hard time organizing everything she has to do. She puts a lot of pressure on herself.” No 5th grader should be putting that much pressure on themselves.

“Nicole wants to please.”
