As I am observing my students they belong to two very distinguishable camps.
People who ask for help, and people who don’t.
I myself belong to the second camp. But my reasons for not asking help is different from yours… lol. Maybe.
When I look back at my childhood, I must have decided really early on that asking for help is useless. At best they say “go away”, or who do you think you are… At the worst they beat you up.
And I could use a lot of help. Especially in learning. Especially since by brain damage almost 20 years ago.
