Question How do I explain it? - April 29th 2009, 09:21 PM

Okay so, after a lot of trouble in my school my mum agreed to let me move to another 6th form, but she'd only let me go to the one she wanted me to.
And its just I don't know anybody there, which is a double edged sword, cause its good cause I don't know anybody but at the same time I don't know ANYBODY, and if I'm in trouble or upset at school who will I turn to? I don't make friends so easy.
But I wanted to go to this other school where I know a couple of people, and they're really good friends, but my mum said no because she's kind of a snob and says its not very good, when actually I checked the numbers and stuff and people get pretty decent grades from there. I know I'd feel so much better about next year if I knew I was going to somewhere where I knew somebody.
Because I'm at the point now where, if it came down to it and my mums choice was my only choice I'd rather not stay in education.
How can I explain it to her. She never listens.

It's not always easy, but McFly's here forever
I know you believe me, when you look into my eyes
'Cause McFly never dies, because The Heart Never Lies!"

Parents can be tricky like that sometimes you know its because the want the best for you however eventually you are becoming a adult and need your freedom and decided what is best for you. If she doesn't listen to words maybe an alternitive way.
Try wrting it all down on a peice of paper and give it to her. Then maybe she'll understand, All parents are snobs in away, its a matter of telling them to takes things into consideration is the problem.

Stay in Educatation because my grandad says 10 years of school will pay off as you get older educatation is a privliage we all have. To enjoy.

Hope this helps PM me if you need my help because my brother is in 6th form so I witness some stuff you may go through.
