But she says that I'm not allowed out on the weekends until I get an A, which I have now because it's a new quarter but she won't listen to me. And I can't see my grade until my next progress report

Have your teacher write a note that explains your current grade, your mother may be more willing to negotiate with it.

Tell her that she's overreacting you've gotten good grades all your life. Tell her that you'll raise up your grade or do extra credit.

Accept the consequences. Learn from it. It sucks mate, but arguing will make the punishment worse. If you must tell her, tell her calmly and nicely that you think it is unfair. Than leave it at that. Try harder on that subject. Hard work pays off. She just wants you to succeed. Best of luck. ;3 -Hunter

Try making a deal were; if you raise your grade to a B, she will un-ground you.

It's only a week. Catch up on the social studies and even read ahead. Actually you're pretty lucky,if it was my mom I'd be stuck in the house til mid terms came out.

It's not what you can say but what you can do. Get better grades. And knock off the whining!
