Greetings for the day!

I just spent some time reading, what you have written, and I must say that you have a lot of courage to come to portal like this, and share what you are feeling. At first let me tell you have a lot of strength to share how you are feeling about your emotions regarding your parents reaction on you.

I mean, parents naturally become upset because they always have seen their kid as best and it is really important for their children to succeed. Even if they are fine with their children to perform average, but the society doesnt let them be at par with that, they always put the pressure of performance, eventually that performance pressure comes on the children as well.

Always be honest about your grades, and dont let them ever find about your grades, because that makes them feel worse all the more. It is always better to tell them before hand and tell them the honest reason so as to why did you get bad grades, also since education is for your betterment as well, it is no harm in performing well. If you feel like cry, dont hold back. Do cry and apologising to your parents will be the next thing to do.

Ask your parents to co-create a space with them, wherein you ask your parents about how you want to incorporate some effective technique changes in your studies. Letting them co-create the space with them, gives them a sense of workload even you possess and given their set of experience in life, they will always be equipped with helpful/ideas and experiences to help you out.

I am sure that if the environment around is helpful for you to learn, then in no time I guarantee you that your grades will drastically improve. Also if anyway I can be of any further assistance, do message me because I, myself am a teacher.

Thanks. :)
