We all have problems at different times in our lives. What does a student do when he or she has a problem? First, it all depends on how serious that problem is. If it is very serious, the student should definitely mention it to a teacher or a guidance counselor right away. That student needs help and can't do it alone. There are people trained to help him or her. Now, if the problem is more of an annoyance, a bother, or a worry, then he or she shouldn't let it interfere with his / her schoolwork. He or she should stay focused on the assignments and classwork. That student should force himself or herself to put the problem out of his / her mind while in school or doing homework. When he / she is done working, that student will still remember the problem, but it will probably seem not so important any more. The point is that schoolwork is directly related to one's future life, and should receive priority attention.
