Last year when i was going into my freshman year, my parents decided I would have to go to a catholic, private school. I've been in private schools my whole life, and I wasn't happy with the decision, but i figure i would give it a shot. A month in I hated it, and told them. My dad who is an alumni, told me its always like that for the first few months, so I stuck in, but i still hated it. I then went to my guidance counselor and told them i wanted to change schools (i dont fit in with the kids, the majority of them are rich, snobby kinds of people) not only that, its an all guy school, so theres tons of egos, when i used to make sports teams, because were the best athletic high school in the city, i dont make any now. I hate the structure, which is really really strict, the disciplinary system lacks judgement. When my parents found out what i was doing with my counselor, getting papers to switch, they freaked out and told me that if i did my priveledges would be taken away, that im ruining my life. So i decided fine ill try it for the rest of the year, I still hate it and they are making me go again for grade 10, i just got into a huge arguement with my mom, and it feels like im going to have to go through a whole other year of this crap. I feel really depressed and I hate my parents. I dunno what to do.
Have you told your parents about why you dislike the school and all those things you've told us? If you have and they still don't understand, I feel bad for you, but I guess the only thing you can do is to try to make the best of it no matter how much it sucks. If they haven't heard about why, and you're not going to tell them, then you're going to lose the next three years of your life to a place where you could've gotten out of. It doesn't seem like they're being very reasonable about it. Tell them you've already tried to adjust to it and adapt yourself to it, but I think, from what I'm getting, it seems too hard. You've already given it a chance that they've asked you for and it's time to switch. Tell your dad it's been more than the first few months and you resent it. I'm sure they'll try some reasoning with you. Good luck.
We do what we do in life because the world tells us it's right. But what's there to tell the world whether or not what -it's- doing is right?
Dude, I've been in your exact shoes (except it was Military School) before. Just be glad it's not Military School.I realized pretty quick that I would have had to stay at Military School for the rest of my high school years (Which was only 1.5 years at the time), but I barely survived the first semester.What finally forced my parents to not send me back was me getting kicked out of the school and therefore not even being allowed to return. I don't suggest you take this route though, as it will cause more trouble to the average kid than it will do good.
Yeah, I've tried reasoning with them, I've told them how I feel, but they still won't allow me to change. Ugh.. I seriously hate my family, its dysfunctional on top of this.
