Wow do I know exactly what you're talking about
My parents put me through the exact same thing and I'll tell you what, high school was so stressful, the worst years of my life for sure.
I wanted to be a nurse and if I got anything under an A, my parents would either get upset or say "you could have done better". It was really hard to deal with because I felt like I was ruining everything.
Let me tell you this. I'm almost 23 now and I really regret getting so worked up over high school because it just does not matter. Getting your diploma is important of course, but how you get there and the drama and the frustration... Once you're done with high school it's all in the past. Whether you get an A or B makes no difference in the end. Of course there's no way to explain this to parents so the best you can do is just humor them until it's over.
