Normally I am very educationally smart and do well in school. However, for this last six weeks in highschool I made a "C" in chemistry. Not my best subject. My Mom went crazy and I felt like I wanted to kill her and myself in the process. She threatened that if I don't bring up my grades then she will prohibit me from going to my youth group. Now that is isn't right. I know that as a citizen of America, and one of Gods children, I have the freedom of religion. The youth group that I go to is really the only thing that really motivated me to believe in Christ. They are like a family to me. They have prayed for me, comforted me, responded when I was in need, helped me through tough times, and motivated me. My Dad says that my Mom is only trying to motivate me. But how is this possible when I am actually afraid of her. She isn't motivating me, she is only putting pressure and fear inside of me. Hope Gorden, my youth leader, even lets us bring our homework up to the church before youth starts so we can work on it and get help from others! Why would she be taking away an opportunity to bring up my grades when she wants to bring them up? Why does she have to yell at me EVERY TIME I MESS SOMETHING UP!!!??? I PASSED didn't I??!! Those people are the only people that ever helped me to keep up my faith. I can't do it without them! If she wants me to believe in God and if she wants me to bring up my grades then why, why, why is she going to take away my youth group ??????!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need help on how to handle this. I couldn't tell her this because I knew not what she would say. I knew not what she would even do. I love her very much, but for Christ's sake why is she wanting to do this?! I need help, I need answers, I NEED MY YOUTH GROUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
