how do I convince my parents into believing I am smarter than a certain person
ok so I have a cousin in my grade and school who has had straight A's for basically forever and I have gotten just one B over the school year so my parents always say that my cousin is smarter than me however even she admits that I am much smarter compared to her. she is one of those good girls that never talk in school so the teachers love her. me on the otherhand am talkative and participating in school. the only reason that I got a overall B in one class was because the teacher wasn't willing to bump up my grade by .1%! this was probably because he hated me for talking in class. now since my parents say I am not as smart as my cousin, I have started to homeschool myself over the summer to prepare myself and try to become as smart as I can. however my cousin came over today and asked why I was studying and my parents said that since I am not smarter than her, I have to study over the summer to catch up. why would I need to catch up if I am already smarter than her. I mean I take classes that are 2 years above my level already.
