    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.

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

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.
