She said that if my twin sister could get an A in every subject, then so shoud I. And she's blaming me because I'm "Shy" as the teachers call it and she's telling me to get over my shyness or I'll end up failing at life in general. Do you guys have any idea what I should do, cause all she wants me to do is have straight As for the rest of my school life.

You could point out that it's kind of difficult to get straight As when you're under that sort of pressure...?

That's honestly all I can think of. How hard you have to work to maintain good grades kind of varies from person to person.

But, again, not everyone works very well under pressure...

I am in trouble if I have less than a 94, so feel lucky (not to be offensive)>

 

I have had straight A's my whole life and my school has plenty of homework, and a bunch of Honors classes I am taking. But it is honestly a bit very harsh to compare you to your twin sister.

Just explain to your mom that getting a 4.0 GPA isn't your first priority, or that you don't feel the need to get one. Or if you do want a 4.0, explain that getting mad at you isn't going to boost your grades, and may in fact make them worse.

Rap to her the Don't Stay in School song by Boyinaband. Confused?

#Don'tStayInSchool. Listen to that song. Here's a preview.

 

negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared minus 4ac over 2a

That’s insane, that’s absolutely insane.

They made me learn that over basic first aid

Or how to recognise the most deadly Mental disorders

Or diseases with preventable causes

Or how to buy a house with a mortgage

If I could afford it

‘cause abstract maths was deemed more important

than advice that would literally save thousands of lives!

but it’s cool, ‘cause now I could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime.

OMG sounds like my mom. I got a B+ and she said it wasn't good enough, even though it wasn't my fault someone stole my shop project.... All I know is I put it in our class's locker and the next day it was gone. The result: I threw something together last minute. UGH

Getting a B is pretty good, if you ask me. I would tell her that having a straight A is not always possible.....But no offense, getting grades are important.

Just don’t over do it.

The advice I'd have is to make sure to seek out your teachers if you want more help or didn't feel comfortable asking a question in class. As a shy person myself it really helps and none of my teachers have ever been annoyed by it. But like other people said, a B isn't bad and you aren't your sister.

While I understand the thing about comparing you to your sister and "shyness", at least trying to get a grade up can't hurt. I have three "B"s because the freshman teachers don't teach any of the content they put on tests. My parents get mad at me constantly for it, even though the scores are about 1% away from being AN "A"...

 

If I were you I'd remind them that "C" is average, and a "B" is even pretty good. Even "D"s are passing in most places. Ask your parents if they had perfect grades in school. At my school only teacher's kids and some rich kids get all "A"s. Remind you're mom that school isn't the same as when she was a kid. We learn more. We read more. We most definitely type essays more. Fun fact: Most of our parents wouldn't have even heard of the quadratic formula (which somebody mentions earlier in the Boyinaband song) until college precalc or algebra. We learn how to use it in the eighth grade. We are held to a different standard than your parents.

 

Also, grades don't always reflect intelligence. My quiz bowl team has few members with straight "A"s.

Geez need I say this again? NOBODY should ever be compared to a sibling, family member, or anyone else, really.

 

School is way harder than it was. Parents will refuse to believe it, but It's true. I have many teacher friends that will tell you flat out "The way the curriculum is teaching doesn't make sense. It'd just be easier to-" and these are actual teachers.

 

And about your shyness, Nightshade.. You can't just get over that. My parents always told me to just get over my anxiety and asked what did I do wrong? What made you depressed? when I was depressed. The fact is, I can't and they did nothing. I have no reason to be, but I just am, randomly. It's still like this, but I'm getting better.

 

My advice for shyness/ anxiety would be to FAKE confidence. If you do it long enough, you'll start to actually believe that you are confident. At least that worked for me.

 

I hope things get better for you, buddy

@Everyone

Thanks for the advice. I've honestly tried some of those. But no matter what I say, my mom always believes that those are excuses, or that I'm gonna try to talk back to her. It's really very annoying when she actually checked my grades and saw that I had a B in math because now, a part of the grade is participation, which for them means to constantly raise my hand and answer any and every questions. Just yesterday I wasn't even able to sleep because of all the pressure she's been putting on me. But at least she isn't as bad as my dad who wants everything I do with a perfect score. I actually once came home with a small quiz from math with a 99.5% and he said, and I am directly quoting this, "Where's the other 5%? you should get better, make it even a 110%! You should be the best student in the entire school! Or maybe even the entire networ! But really? He could you miss half a point? This stuff is easy!" Which made me kind of angry. Wow. I was ranting. Sorry about that, but actually, thank you all for giving me some advice.

Give similar problems to your parents and see if they can do it, then hand it to your teacher and explain your situation and ask the teacher to correct it

 

I remember how my dad helped my brother with his homework once, but then my brother got every single question wrong on the assignment because it turned out dad actually didn't know how to do math!

I am trying. But it's hard because apparently, I also have to talk. And the teacher's mean. I came back from the dentist last friday with the entire lower half of my face numb. And sleepy cause they used laughing gas. The teacher knew that, and still kept calling on me to answer while I was still trying to regain feeling into mah face.

No, I wanted to but there was absolutely no way I could phisically do that. My dad took me straight to school and I don't know how to drive. It was also snowing that day and my dad had to go back to his job. So There was no possible way I could have gotten home.

@Fanir it's not her fault - lack of mental stability and stress makes your ability to learn drastically decrease. it's her mother, it's her envirnment. but it is not her. good mental health is essential for doing well.
