hi there again, are you saying you feel pressure to get the good grades to do the volunteering, etc?
I was wondering if you didn't do the volunteering what would you do with your time? is there something else you'd rather do? are you planning on going to college once you graduate? there is a lot of pressure on folks these days especially in school.
You know, I don't know how you feel about it, but maybe you could speak with someone at the school if you don't feel like talking w/ your parents. They most certainly know more than we do about this stuff.
Let me know what you decide,k? at least you're asking questions. some folks don't. that's what this board is for. (((HUG)))) Cathy
