Have you ever felt like your parents put too much stress on you about college? I know mine do. All throughout high school they have been telling me I need to do well in order to get into a good college, but junior year is the year they have been putting the most stress on me about it. We all know that in order to get accepted into a college we want to go to we have to get good grades, so I don't understand why our parents have to put the reminder back into our heads everyday.
Lately at my house, everything I do relates back to how my school work will affect my college admissions. I already know what school I would like to go to and what needs to be done to get in, but no matter what I do my parents try to push me harder. Right when I get home from school, they want me to work, work, work. I can't skip out on any homework and I have to study for all tests. And with us just finding out our ACT scores, my parents keep pushing me because "I can do better if I practice".
Most students that want to go to college have enough self motivation to push themselves enough to do their work and get good scores, but it gets made so much more difficult when you have your parents breathing down your back adding more stress to our already stressful high school lives,
Do anyone else's parents feel the need to constantly nag them about the future?
