Kim's Diary

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." Explain how this statement was not true for Jarrod. (Someone used words to hurt him, and someone used words to help him.)
Have you ever had a similar situation in your life? Tell me about it.

  2. Normliy my dad gives me my words that cheer me up. But my sister will normily tear me down. But normily she is just joking but I take it serusliy. I liked kims diary. It was a good book. It showed how one person can make a diffrence in one life. It was a good sequal to treasure in a oatmeal box.

  3. Jerrod's real mom was very mean to him. She told him that he was good for nothing and other things that hurt his feelings. Kim was the one who told him none of that was true. My mom and dad are the people who build me up with words. My brothers are the two people who tear me down.

  4. Jarrod's life was turned upside -down when his mother told him things like she wished that he had never been born and that his sister's death had been his fault. However, Kim cheered him up by saying nice things about him and encouraging him. I think the saying ,''Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" does not apply to Jarrod. My friends and my parents are people who build up my hopes. My brother sometimes gets me mad, but I always forgive him and he also tells me he was kidding and apologizes.

  6. Words do hurt people. Jerrods old parents would say mean things to him and it made him angry and a bully. Kim told him that it was not true and he was not good for nothing. She also made him nicer and more friendly. Once some kids called me bad names but my mom told me it was not true.

  7. Jerod's parents didn't treat him with any respect, they called him good for nothing. No one ever wanted to be his friend. All the parent's said to there kids you don't want to end up like Jerrod Jackson. He's probaly had a tough life. For my entire life my brother has treated me a lot like that. I've tried to stop him some time's but he still does it.

  8. Jerrod was called a lot of names and his parents blamed him for every thing even the death of his sister!After that (if that wasn't bad enough) he and his brother were sent to an orphanage where they(him and his little brother) got split up.Isn't that horrible! Some one who hurt him with words was his parents some one who made him feel better with words was Kim, he started out mean but that's because he had anger and sadness but Kim brought out the best of him.Some one hurt me with words in first grade when someone called me something very mean, another time some one made me a book and left with my folders I couldn't figure it out who left it there.That was the nicest thing any one has done for me in a long time. I still carry it to my classes when I have my binder. :)

  9. Jarrod was really mean at first but then once you got to know him he was really nice. What made Jarrod really mad was how his mom treated him. She told him that he was good for nothing and when his sister died she told him that it was all his fault. When both he and his brother were put in an orphange home, his brother was adopted. He felt a lone. Then someone finally adopted him. They were always talking about how he was so much trouble. Once he and Kim were friends, he didnt feel sad anymore.

  10. Jerrod was treated bad most of his life. His mother told him she wished he was never even born! She even accused him of his sister's death. Jerrod and his brother were sent to an orphanage because their parents did not want them. Since Jerrod was treated bad he does the same with other people. Sometimes my brother can be mean but that can not be compared to Jerrod's life. Once Kim and Jerrod started being friends Kim turned his life upside down. Jerrod was nicer! The saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt me" is not true. Words can hurt people!

  11. Jerrod was treated poorly at home and his mom accused him of the death of his sister. Because of the way he was raised, he treated other people badly like Kevin, Kim and other people. He smoked and started fights when it was unnecessary and not the right thing to be doing. That is why "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt me". The words that people say can hurt badly!

  12. Jerrod was treated badly in his home and his mom blamed him for his sister death. He bullied everyone until he picked up Kims diary. After he read and returned it he started to be nice and showed Kim all his collections. My brother can pick on me alot and say mean things but I know he doesnt mean it. I can say mean things to my parents but they know I dont mean it. My mom always says to me where is my sweet Miles? and it makes me smile!

  13. Jerrod was treated badly by his mother and father and really was in a tight spot then his parents drop him and his brother of at an orfenadge. Jerrod was to sad to make friends and always wanted to be the stronger one.And then when he started that fight he picked up Kim's Diary.He was wanting to give it back to Kim but he was a little frightened because he looked at Kim's Diary. I deal with things like this one by talking it out to my Mom,my Dad,and some other friendly people that are around me. I think that whoever needs to talk about something but dont want to say it in privet go to your parents because you know them more than anyone else I do that when i need to talk about that type of stuff. Thank you and have a nice day.

  14. People say that to make you feel better but I think words really can hurt you. Like when people call you names so many times you actually start to believe them. It didn't work for jarrod because he was friends with Kim and now he is moving away.

  15. Jarrod's parents told him that they were moving once Jarrod had made finally made friends with Kim. Then Kim helped Jarrod fell better by saying they could write to each other and call each other, which they did. And after a period of time Kim and her family met Jarrod's family to see the Wizard of Oz, the book they read together in class when they were younger. Over the past summer my family has moved, and at first I was not happy about it. But now we have a pool, hot tub, and a movie theater which does not have a screen yet.

  16. Jarrod's parents told him that they were moving when him and Kim finally made friends and liked each other!!And Kim made him feel better by saying that they could still be friends and talk to each other on the phone and write each other in letters and that made him feel better.And she also put together his broken glass bottles into a rainbow!!!....This is my story, i love to play basketball and after i get done playing and we lost and its because of me it makes feel better when a lot of people walk up to me and say good game!!And it makes me feel really good!!Its just like Jarrod and Kim, Kim says it will be okay and it makes him feel better!!Well that's my story!!!!

  17. Jerrod's parents were mean to him and they made made think everything was his fault. Even when it had nothing to do with him. They always had wanted a girl and finally had one but she died so they put him in an ophanige and that was his story now I will tell you mine. One dayI went to a sleepover at my friends house and ther were three friends at a house and we were in a fight so we had to go to separate sides of the house. to work it out and she kept blaming everything on me but it never made since so the third friend had us play a waterbaloon game and we finally worked it out and that is my story.

  18. Jarrod's mom was very mean with words and hurt him. Kim used words to help him. He was nice and happy again after Kim showed him kindness. Jarrod got married and it changed his future.

  19. Sometimes words can hurt,especially for Jarrod. His real mom was really mean.All she did was scream at Jarrod.Then he had to go to an orphinage.Then he met Kim and every thing was better.They became friends and he got a lot nicer to people and when got older he had a great future.

  20. Jarrod's real parents were mean to him even though he did nothing wrong. Like when his sister died, his mother dropped him off at a orphanage with his brother. When he moved away, he was going to miss Kim, but Kim said that they can still call each other. I was at the playground talking to my friends and one of them said that she was fat, and that I was fater. Finally she a apologised, and everything went back to normal.

  21. His real parents we're mean to him when he did nothing wrong. When his sister died they blamed him for everything. Then they took him and his brother to an orphanage. And when Jerrod was crying Kim said everything was going to be alright. I was pushing this kid on the swings and he said I was ugly then another person said that wasn't true then I was alright.

  22. Jerrods real parents were mean to him. His parents said he was worthless and treated him badly. My dad told me dont let anyone tell you that you arent smart. Jerrods parents didnt respect him. My parents suport me and help me.

  23. Jarrod's mom said that he could not take care his brother and sister. Kim used words to help him. Addie my sister sometimes uses harmful words to me. My mom says nice things to me.

  26. Jerrod was always put down by his parents. His mom thought that it was his fought because his sister died. When he became friends with Kim you could see that Jerrod had a good side. He was staring to act nice to people.

  27. It was not true for Jarrod because when he heard people saying he was hopeless it hurt him. One time in preschool a girl was teasing me for putting on chap stick. It hurt so much I never put chap stick on again.

  28. Kim used words to hurt and help Jerrod in his life

  30. I was at my daddy's house with my brothers. I was playing a computer game and my brother started laughing at me. I said Why are you laughing? He said because that is a baby game. That hurt my feelings but I didn't show it.

  32. When I was little one of my frinds said they hated me and didn't want to talk to me ever again.That hurt me very bad and, I came home crying like a water fall

  33. In the book, Jerrod's parent said he was worthless. Sometimes people joke about that, but depending on who the words come from, they hurt them. Sometimes people say mean things to me, but if they are in a bad mood I have to tell myself not to take it to heart so i don't get hurt. If they do say mean things, I go to my parents and they tell me that I am smart and its gonna be okay.

  40. Jarrod's life was at first very hard and sad because his mom would be very mean and blame everything on him and he was also put in an orphanige in his life.His parents realy wanted a girl so he wasn't treated good and also his sister passed away. Once he got to know Kim it was okay. They got to become friends and help and understand eachother.Since things were hard for Jarrod, he wasn't very nice and didn't act the same but if he was more personal and got to be friends with you, he is a good guy. My family is always incouraging me and saying good compliments to me.

  41. Jarrod was upset by how his mom used words to hurt him. When Kim said nice words to him, Jarrod became a nice person. When I was in 3rd grade, I was sad that I made a 90 on a test when I though got a 100. Mrs. Nash heard me talk about it, and she told me that a 90 was still really good grade. That made me feel better.

  42. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me saying was not true for Jerrod. His family was broken apart because of his sister's death, he was split from his brother, and people blamed him for his sister's death. Kim came along and used kind words and understood his life issues and was able to help him have a happier life. Also, with Kim, Jerrod made a new friend.

  43. In third grade, I had a classmate that hurt my feelings by trying to exclude me from hanging out with my other friends. I felt like no one wanted to play with me and that feels bad."Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" that might be true for some people, but not for me.

    Thank You!

  44. I can't really think of a specific time when that same thing happened happened because it is basically is a regular basses with me because of my sister.Well sometimes for me that same thing is true but most times my sister's words make it so that it is almost impossible to make me feel better.

    A couple years Jerrod parents was not good parents. I don't understand why thy would have 3 children!When Jerrod's sister died, his mother accused Jerrod for his sister death. After that his mom and dad were tired of this,so they just dropped them off at a orphange house.But, Jerrod and his brother are separated in different families. Jerrod have nice parents now, but he is not nice. But, when Kim came everything was turned around! No, I have not have a situation like this. Yes, words can hurt you very much.:] :]

  50. Jared was like no other kid somtims .He would act up in school and say bad words.When kids would call him names he would feel bad.He would feel even more bad when kids would leave him alone.That is why he would bully other kids.I think the rhyme makes me think of that.One time at camp I was playing with my friends and they left me once I came over I felt horrible.Then I wrote her a letter and at the end we worked it all out.

  51. The other kids call Jerrod names but on the outside he does not care but in the inside he does care and Kim helps him.One time I was playing soccer and I did not which was ours and I kicked it into the wrong goal everybody called me names but as Kim said sticks and stones can break my bone but words will never hurt me.

  52. Jerrod's old parents were very mean to him. when they told him to take on a responsibility, he wasn't ready for it. When a disaster happened, they were even meaner to him then before. They gave him up, which made him angry and a bully.Kim's kind words helped him show his softer side to the world. One time at school (When I had braces) there was this kid who started making fun of me because of my braces. I didn't care, so i replied " I like your shoes" and walked away. She was totaly puzzled in the end. And apoligized later on because she said she was in a bad mood and said thanks for the compliment.

  53. No i have not but what it means is that Jerrod may feel bad about being adopted and that's why hes a mean person his old family treated him bad so when Kim stood up to him he thinks that she may be good for him

  54. Jerrod was treating others badly because his parents treated him the same way. He treated them badly because he was always blamed for things he didn't do, so he was angry. Kim cheered him up by asking him what was on him mind, and letting him vent. I used to be called names and was teased. I could have retaliated but the bible says to treat others the way you want to be treated.

  55. Jerrod's Mom and Dad were very mean to him. They should not have made hime take care of his sister. He had a very bad home life and was hurt in his heart. When my Dad died people made fun of me because I didn't have a Dad. This made me feel very bad.
