Hey there,

Parents can be frustrating about courses and grades sometimes, but the fact that you already feel bad about it shows how much you care about how you did in the course and what your dad will think. Your dad just wants you to do well, so try not to let his comments upset you. Now you know what you need to do better, and hopefully you will get another shot at it.

If you feel you did the best you could, then do you think the course might be the problem? Maybe you could switch into a subject you would enjoy more and excel in. Changing what you want to do is always an option, so don't feel bad about rethinking this.

Take care and good luck
