hey here’s a wild idea…
instead of making someone feel like shit for skipping class,
ask them why they skipped class!
maybe something’s up, maybe something’s on their mind
maybe something is in the way of them being able to concentrate in class or even physically get into a classroom
maybe your concern could be a turning point and help them realize what the right thing to do, in their case, would be!
i mean, just a suggestion
