Perfectionist parents are a royal pain, but there is a bright side to this. Trouble is, you won't realize it until later in your life.

When you get old enough to go out on your own, you'll be competing with billions of other people your age looking for a job and the whole idea is that your mom wants you to be better than the competition, not just average. And she probably won't be happy until you bring home ALL A's. An A here and there isn't good enough.

Another way of looking at it is when you go to the doctor and you have a life threatening injury he has to do surgery on you to fix---do you want a surgeon who has made B's and C's cutting into you , or would you pick a doctor that made straight A's?

In the long run, it makes a big difference.

I'd say that your spelling skills are Exhibit A as to why this is.

Sometimes I feel the same way with my parents... Tell her how her behavior is making you feel, as long as you're trying your best there's nothing she can yell at u about
