Its long and a little complex (thanks anyway)

firstly, im in YR10, i have 3 younger siblings and very high expections for parents

im struggling in science and i try my best to revise everyday, but usually i told off my parents for staying in my room for too long as i have to look after my sisters (twins are 3 and youngest is 10 months) 

EXAMPLE: my littlest sister chocked on something and started vomiting and i got told off by my dad so i wasnt allowed into my room ( BEST P[LACE FOR ME TO REVISE) AND in my culture women who are older have to learn how to cook and clean, my mum complains because i revise instead. lastly, i wanted to tell this to my science teacher because im sure i did really badly in a test. Overall, im alllowed in my room for H/W and revision for an hour.

hey :) i knw wat ur goin through.. i went through the same in yr10.. this is wat i did..

i first tried explainin to my mum bwt how important my gcses are n that i promise i will help as long as she helps me, like in ur situation my mum didnt like the fact that i kept on revisin n not helping her as much, i was so stressed out with both work and home plus at the beginng of the year we had three family tragedies making life even more harder, i only told my best friend about it, she could see i was struggling so she spoke to my head of year, coz she knows im really close to my HOY, so my HOY spoke to me, and my parents and told them how my gcses are really important.. in the end both me and my family came up with a solution.. we created a timetable, with subjects i will revise that day and when my break is, i kept a copy and gave one to my parents, during break time you obviously need to relax, so i decided to help my parents then and do all the cleaining and cooking, after few weeks it worked our really well both work and housework was done and my parents actually liked it.. so thats how it is now..

Have you tried explaining to your teacher(s) about how you feel? Maybe they could talk to your parents and explain everything? Don't keep how you feel inside, just sit down and talk and be completely honest - they're your parents so they will understand! You're obviously a hard working person and it's not like you don't want to do badly or get out of doing anything, you want to please everybody all at once but you're only one person. Just try your best in everything, and that is all that can be asked of you.

Ask your parents what do they expect you to get in your GCSE ? Ask your parents what they want you to do in your future, so you career path ? Explain to them you will only achieve these ambitions if you work collaboratively together, and they allow you to revise and at the same time you agree to do the coooking, cleaning etc; when your free. However,tell them as you are inyear 10 your education is important and therefore they have to give you less house chores and allow you to revise more

so i suggest firstly if you are struggling to convince your mum to collaborate together, and you do some cleaning when you are free and revise otherwise, i suggest you speak to some your close with whether thats a family member or a teacher, and ask them to talk to your mum and explain the importance.. try and devise a plan together.. and test it our for a month, if it is successful continue.. otherwise try another strategies.

Good luck !!! All the best ***. ..

remember you dont have to go thorugh this on your own, theres always someone ready to help you :)

Print out the poster in the Poster Time promo in the right hand column and show it to them.

Tell them that in order to look after them when they're old you need to focus on this now ...and the next few years.

However, having a 10mnth old in the house almost certainly means that they are sleep deprived and stressed / irrational because of that. Give them a break too.

Pray about it. Parents have problems understanding this stuff because of generational differences. try going to a library after school and get as much as you can there.
