    What grades you get in school compared to your bro?
    He's 12 so there isn't much to compare in terms of our grades.

    What I actually meant is that he gets away with a lot of stuff simply because he is younger and as I'm the older one my mum expects a lot from me. If you look at one of my threads you will understand

    Thing is parents aren't strict on their kids, but if teachers try to discipline their little darling, the parents come down on them like a tonne of bricks.

    People say lots of young people have no manners and you see teachers resigning from schools a lot because there's no discipline.
    13 of my teachers left at the end of the most recent year and this is after a stricter head came in and started doing more annoying (from a student's point of view) policies...
