    All I was saying was it's common for teenagers to think they know better than everyone, including their own parents.

I think catholic school is the biggest ******* joke ever. Pay high tuition for the same education in a stressful enviroment. kids will hate it even more than they already hate school....
      She's stubborn though. She basically has no sense of direction and she thinks her boyfriend (who is 17 too) will make everything OK. This is the type of mentality that I do not like.

      My sister is the definition of a dependent woman - stupid and arrogant.

        it sucks that your parents are that way. growing up right is like 90% parenting.....its refreshing to hear that you took your schooling as your own responsibility. I wish I was able to do that. i just ****ed around in school. decent grades and everything, but I didn't really care. It wasn't until college that i realized i hadnt mentally prepared for what was next. definitely my biggest regret in life to date was that I didn't get a degree from UGA business school =(

          correct. and in Moke's case, it seems he does know more than the parents. I don't know Moke, but....he sounds like someone i could be proud of lol

          • I don't really think I took full responsibility in college though because my grades aren't that great. I had to go through mad hardships with my parents during my college years. My parents were always fighting and my mom demanded I do a lot around the house.

            But I do know more about my parents. They always ask me for help and things they don't know how to do. It also comes with generations really. They weren't into the tech world, and we younger people were grown up into it.

            But thank you, JPizz

              Let me tell you pizz, I went to catholic elementary school and one year in high school. When I got to public, it was like I was back in 6th grade. Its much more disciplined

                Catholic school might be more disciplined, but it doesn't teach you discipline at all.

                  jsut because a place is disciplined, doesnt mean the occupants are disciplined....

                  catholic school is sheltered bull****. its how you teach ppl to be socially awkward. your exposure to real world **** is nonexistent.

                  im trying not to sound biased as an athiest, but clearly that comes into play here. I can't help it lol. at least i can admit that though. =P

                    My parents literally gave up on me and my brother. They used to be into school and then when they had all these issues with money, they gave 0 ****s. You know what? Every time I came home late from school, they'd argue with me to do something they could have easily done when they weren't doing anything at home. I told them I had schoolwork to do and I needed it done, but my mom gave me no empathy. She pretty much argued with me that her gallon of milk was more important than my homework, nonetheless my major homework.

                    My sister - she has no support from my parents anymore. They are paying for her catholic HS education and yet she's wasting it away by getting horrible grades and not doing anything. She took 2 free periods instead of taking classes to enlighten her, just so she can go home.

                    What the ****? Is that something wrong with our education? Something wrong with my mom for not pushing her? I pushed her.... and it didn't work. I basically got a huge "**** you" when I explained to her that school is important.
                    It's all about maturity, at least give her a few years to wise up most people at that age don't have their head screwed on right yet

                      Sure it does. Theres an all boys school Chaminade right around the block from me. They have the highest or one of the highest of students getting into amazing colleges and becoming successful after they graduate. The individual has to want it.

                        You don't want her to go through the things you had to go through. I'm glad you care so much about her decision making/future. Just be patient, she's going to fuss and all that, but she is your sister. As for your parents..that's a tough situation to be in. Sorry man.

                          I agree with Moke completely on this.

                          Honestly I don't think any type of school can teach discipline anyhow, I think discipline and work ethic are two things that can only come from parenting.

                              Well, youre wrong man. A kid that goes to catholic school has a better shot at getting into a good college and being successful than someone going to public school. How exactly is it sheltered? They still go home at the end of the day, its not boarding school. its got nothing to do with religion, i dont like the church either.

                                corrrrrrect. if you dont respect youre parents, and they cant turn you into a disciplined child, why the **** is a kid going to care about a bunch of teachers???
