This is not the first time I have heard of such things in schools.
Of course, our teachers normally went into the coatroom. It didn't really help very much; we could still hear her cussing .

The science of why crying is actually good for your mental health.

www.webmd.com...

Of Course, science is stoopid, amiright?


That's beside the point. The point is that the average kid with the average course load shouldn't need to dissolve into tears over finals.

Lots of things in their actual life will be worse than finals week.

What will happen to them during their first weeks as a parent, for example?

Doing your damned homework reduces stress.


I always have told my kids that the easiest test is the one you have prepared for, and homework only gets stressful if you have not completed it on time.

at least the SJW's are predictable. they are here taking up for the cause. But don't be angry at me, I'm just pointing it out, you who are SJW's are just being true to yourselves. Embrace that.

Life is hard. Life often sucks. It is a struggle.

Life is not easy. Success requires work and effort.

And even then, you may not succeed.




Someone should have told those kids that.

But if you tell them that, it damages their self-esteem. Then they need a therapy dog.

They’ll probably cry a few times. I know I did. Crying didn’t stop me from being a good mom. Just like crying won’t stop these kids from acing their finals. I truly don’t know why you guys are getting so upset over this. It really ain’t no big deal.

This is what society has become. And people wonder why there are school shootings. Because people can’t handle adversity at all stages of life. Whether it’s being bullied or taking a tough exam.

Nobody’s forcing anyone to cry who doesn’t want to. This is “Murica”. Cry if you want, don’t cry if you don’t want. That’s freedom baby! Ain’t it great?

Weaklings like you are what’s wrong with this society! You should never do anything to relieve stress! No exercise, no sex, no drinking, no hot baths, no relaxing! No gaming! Not even a hot cup of tea. Tough it out! Be a man!

You know anxiety is a very real thing.

Its not about raising a generation of pu$$ies, its really quite a disturbing thing for any individual to go through.

In the past, the treatment for anxiety was to "man up" or just to "get a grip". I think when you look at the levels of suicide in the 18-28 age group then you can quiet clearly see that this "treatment" was never working, cronic anxiety is a horrible mental health condition that can easily be exacerbated when at college so taking steps to help students with anxiety has to be a good thing.

Now I personally don't think a "cry closest" is in anyway the right way to go about it, but at least they are doing something and using art as a expression of their attempts to help.


Anxiety is self-made
A fact of life
In the old days , we called it fretting
Folks speculating on the future in the worst way
Its only disturbing for the ones already disturbed

Duh. All emotions are self-made. Ever got angry? You did that to yourself. What’s your point?

That some weak folks put themselves in a position that requires a safe space to cry ?
For no reason except they can
That was too easy .
Try again...
