    Even if your parents don't appreciate your grades, you should congratulate yourself because As and Bs mean you are doing above average and excellent work. And you're doing an honor's class which you got an A in.



    You're doing a good job, even if your parents don't think so.




    A few years ago, I took a geography test in my history class. We had to name all 50 states. I was the only kid in class who named all 50 states. I was really proud and showed my dad, who said I was pathetic for not spelling "massachusetts" correctly, despite me being the only kid in class who knew it was a state.

    In my school you pretty much have to want to fail in order to fail...you can pass any class with a 60. Most schools have programs to help when you need it so only people who really don't care about education fail (Uggh! I'm 15, I should be hating school! I sound like such a nerd).
    My parents have never been into grounding. If they were I would probably be a lot more disagreeable with them now, so I think we both agree that it was a good decision.

    Ahmed, don't mess with Massachusetts!

    grounding works for the girls........cause they want to do stuff and i dont budge when i ground them....Kate knows all she has to do is get good grades and do her chores and ill give her about as much freedom to run as she wants.....but if she aint going to do that she aint going to run......i give her a decent length leash, if she chooses to hang herself with it thats her decision....she tried to threaten me once saying she COULD be much worse.....i just looked her in the eye and said so COULD i.....and thatwas the end of it....

    um, one bad grade and you ground them? That leash is choking them. Do you know how stressful that would be if they had a huge project? it is stressful enough for me even if I wouldn't be grounded.

    one bad grade on their quarterly report card.....not one flunked test, not one flunked quiz.......both girls are smart neither of them are taking calculus yet.....the wife and i got through this school system with one grade on a quarter report card being lower than a C and neither of us were the valedictorian, book worm type....both of us were serious partiers yet in 24 report cards, and between us out of 179 quarter end class grades i had 1 D and my wife had all A's but 1 B and she took a precalc class over the summer so she could take a calc class her senior year, i skipped pre calc and went straight to calc......if the girl's mother and i can do it, be partying every weekend, working more or less full time hours on top of it cause we didnt do sports......well lets say my sympathy is low when we help them EVERY time they ask cause they dont understand something.....this crap aint rocket science
