Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Parents 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.
