I bet there are some kids out there that have parents that pressure them to be better. I believe that it is for a good reason. You parents know things since they have been through plenty in their life time to know how the world works and what you should do that they did not. They know what is going to get you to be successful Some parents don't even do this with their children and that does not help the kids at all. So, the kids that don't have anyone pressuring them do not do as well in school as the kids that have people pressuring them. So I think that kids should stop complaining about their parents being hard on them and start understanding why they do it.
