Help. I dislike my parents? (read description)

I really, really am disliking my parents (read: my mom) right now. So I got a bad grade (70) on an English Honors assignment so I'm redoing it for a possible 100. So I'm doing this when my mom just comes, looks at the grade on the paper and starts ranting about how I'm stupid, how I should have done better, etc, etc. Then she goes bipolar and starts off on how the teacher was so unfair. The worst part was she was still leaning over my shoulder the whole time. That makes me really uncomfortable, when people just stand over me and talk about how stupid I am. So I closed my rewrite on the computer and pulled up my sister's game. My mom finished her rant and noticed the game on the screen and poof, another rant about how lazy I am for not working on the re write. I told her how I feel about people standing over me and she seemed to take nothing in account and kept going on about my laziness. I am so mad and crying right now. I apologized to her and everything, but she's one of those do-as-i-say-or-die parents and doesn't tolerate explanation over the dinner table. I hate it. Suggestions?

The best thing to do is keep trying your best and keep practicing on what your having trouble with after school homework help and everything i know you didnt mean to say anything bad about your parents your just really hurt i see why your still doing good thow to me you are you should be proud of everything you have already accomplished your still doing a great job and i say keep it up and prove your parents wrong your not stupid and no one deserves to be called that i wouldnt listen to stuff like that i would prove them wrong and show them how smart you are by doing stuff by yourself trying your best and do what makes you happy and go for what you want soon you will have a life of your own and you should work hard to reach that point where when u do graduate you can move out and go to college where ever you like feel better and if this helps i think your doing a great job with school=)

Try doing a little better on your tests. If you have any close family members talk to them aboat it. If your mom keeps doing this just anore her. She was probably in a bad mood at the time.

Man, that's a lot of stress. Yeah, you feel like they're a pain in the butt right now, but I think that you should appreciate all the things your mom does for you. Think about it that way. Trust me, you'll be glad once you realize how your mom is always there for you. My dad is kinda like that too, so I know how you feel. When you think about how they're always there for you and how they won't be with you forever, it makes the tension a lot better. Try thinking about it that way, it helps! Good luck!

Never argue with parents. if she yells at you I know it is tempting to say something back but just apologies even if you did nothing wrong just show your parents how much this means to you

I hated my dad growing up. But now that I'm grown and have kids of my own, every single thing he's ever done, even if I think it was irrational to this day, I appreciate him. You'll be amazed in 10 years how this problem you're having and many others like it will seem so small. You'll have real problems to worry about like feeding your kids and keeping a job you hate. This is life buddy, and I'm sorry to say you're in the middle of the easiest part

If you want someone off your back nagging you, you need to satisfy their needs. She's on your back to make her point. To make her feel like you heard her point loud and clear, let her know like this, Ok mom I understand your right I could have done better, I just need to try harder is all, yes mom you are right I get it now, ok mom I will do that ok mom ill try my best thanks mom, it's nice to know you care so much. Here's a hug. Would that hurt you to give her what SHE needs to get what YOU need? And don't be sarcastic, act like you are sincere about what you are saying and really listen so she won't think you being a smarty.
