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?
And this is really not a joke.
Well what I do is just tell them what I did and they get convinced.
Wish my life was as simple as yours.
well you will have to do some working yourself. tell them to take a couple of tests of yours! score good. problem solved! :)
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?".
I hope that you regularly give tests like olympiads and talent ones ?
I can't seem to find it anymore. I think it got deleted.
Exams like olympiads give a chance to you to perform well and prove yourself... Have you given that?
Show them your Os account and the blog? How much you help people. Here.
My parents doesn't care about studies at all.....then where to Convince them...?
well my dad used to take my test every alternate week. it worked for me back then.
he knows ur the laziest.....
@uri My dad once saw a troll posting a question "2 + 2 = ?" on OS. Ever since, he thinks that OS is about newbies.
GUYS....Monday went on Tuesday 2 Wednesday and asked Thursday whether Friday has told Saturday that Sunday is a holiday. Have a Great Sunday...
Now you can show him,your solutions,the testimonials you get,you're a Guiness chotto!
As far as I know U r very very good at maths.....
threats can be motivational;
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.
I am back!
