What do I do if my dad is mad at me?

last night I got an email from my school saying how far behind I was, and it's only because I've been moving and traveling so I couldn't go. the school wanted to put me on probation for being more than 5% behind.I knew of my dad read it he wouldn't understand and just start yelling at me. So I wanted to tell him before he read the email. I could hear him awake watching a tv show and then later I heard him talking to his girlfriend on the iPad. I didn't want him to tell me to go away so I crawled in his room. I soon as I turned around to shut the door he saw me and started yelling at me to leave and was going on about how angry he was and said he was going to have a serious talk with me in the morning. I didn't think he would be so mad and I'm not sure what to do..

just tell you dad why your behind and just tell him your sorry and you will try to get back on track. if that doesnt work then just let him yell at you because no matter how many times you say okay your parents wont stop talking.

Just be honest with him and tell him that you cant solve anything if hes yelling at you. And let him know why your behind and that its not just your fault.

Just explain to him what you were doing in the room and apologize for doing it. Good luck!!

As a mom I have been going through this with my son, and I was so mad at him. I found out that this was not the solution.I called the school and started to talk to all his teacher to find out what was going on and then I sat him down and explained to him what I found out and told him this was what he had to do in order to catch up and start to get on track.I try to work with him and calmly remind him of things he needs to do.He is 17 and of course he thing I am being mean, but he also knows I mean well.Give your dad the opportunity to get in contact with your school and let him feel like he is apart of solution and just try your best and I think if you do.He might not be so upset.

well,wasn't your dad aware of you traveling and moving?if he wasn't well he isn't that responsible himself nor is he being helpful by yelling and screaming.if you are serious about your schooling and don't want to give up tell him so and try harder this time.you must put priorities in your life and stick to them.school is school and traveling should come after you have completed your year,otherwise you r just setting yourself back.
