My poor kid ... she's a Senior in high school this year and has pre AP classes. Problem is, she also works a part-time job that is really more than it should be therefore taking away from her study time. If she asks for fewer hours the goofy boss lowers her hours to a rediculous 6 hours per week, not even worth the gas to go into town for and if she asks for more he complains and then gives her 20-25 which stresses her little self out far too much!
She's supposed to ENJOY high school and NOT work so hard, college and her life after that is for working and pursuing your career. Her schedule is NOT a "preliminary" or "dress rehearsal" ... proud of her though, she doesn't complain but it sure is catching up w/her, I hate that.
Love my kid so much, just dunno what to do for her ... hate this part of being Mommie ... helpless :(
