Angry EXETREME BIAS. - June 15th 2010, 09:31 PM

We all know that parents want the best education for us, right?
When I have drama rehearsal, my mom always has veto power depending on how much homework I have.
But it's different for my brother.
He is doublebooked at the moment.
One side is a science fair.
The other side is a playoff baseball game.
My mom wants him to play in the game.
Don't you think this is biased?
What should I do to convince her to make him do science?


Love you-- Kayla c:

Feel free to PM me if you need anything or have any questions :-)

Kinda sounds sexist.
He should have to do his homework too.
Try bringing that up with your mom.

Why is it any of your buisness what your mom wants him to do?
To be honest, he should be playing the game, why would he been signed up for a team if he's not going to be able to play if he has homework?

pretty stupid IMO

Casue their in the same family, thats why.
You shoudn't call her stupid, your not in her shoes. That doesn't do anything to help. So lets be nice?

I think her doing drama is just as importent as him playing baseball.

Parents are often biased when it comes to their children. It does sound like your mum is playing two sides of the same game. Honestly, as much as it ticks you off, no matter how much you whine, your mum's probably not going to change her mind. Parent's are usually set in their ways, and if you do cause a big huzzah, your brother might resent you for it. Just some food for thought. I hope everything works out for you! <3

Ah, i wasn't calling her stupid, I was calling the situation stupid :P


Look, OP. IF you think that Academics are more important than Athletics, thats great, but not everyone does.

The real answer to this thread as been said already, isn't it entirely up to your brother? Also, how are your grades doing? If your mom thinks that you may need extra work (i,e the entire point of homework) to do better, that may be the reason, while say your brother is doing excellent in school, she thinks that sports may be good for him, and letting him do it as a reward.

Really, its entirely up to your brother what he wants to do.

Not everyone is going to make schoolwork their top priority - not even during their college years! Maybe your brother thinks that being a part of the team is going to be more beneficial in the long-run than participating in a science fair. If it turns out he's wrong (and your mother's wrong)... well, that's something they'll have to learn the hard way. But why should it affect YOU and how you choose to live YOUR life?
