    My parents keep reminding me that I am very bad at mathematics. How do I convince them that I am still okay at math despite my limited knowledge in the subject?

    For example, I am being threatened that the internet would be cut-off for me if I don't qualify for http://brilliant.org summer camp (40 students) and if I don't stand in the top-25 for an olympiad.

    I know that this is a very personal question... it might be closed. But how would I convince them?

    Actually the parents notice the time period of your sitting i.e. concentration. If you concentrate yourself in studies and give yourself less break /limited then this will work.

    I don't know... my parents believe that I have been wasting time on the internet, even though my first question when I joined OpenStudy was, "what is factoring?".

    @uri My dad once saw a troll posting a question "2 + 2 = ?" on OS. Ever since, he thinks that OS is about newbies.

    Parents always want the best for their children. Parenting methods vary. You should watch "Akeelah and the Bee" together- it showed parents that put undue pressure on the top children..... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437800/ Good luck, try just communicating more with your parents. Teenagers tend to withdraw and not communicate. This is a great time to learn to have a civil conversation and learn to agree to disagree. Also show them advance problems that we solve in OS.
