    I pretty sure I'm posting in the right area..

    Anyway, I feel really unmotivated with my studies atm, mainly due to the fact that my parents just don't bother caring about it.. I have no relationship with my dad, and my mum says she wants me to do well, but doesn't really push me, ever. My friends parents came to parents evening, even though we're in sixth form now.. but my mum didn't, even though she was at home on the night. I just don't know what to do, because I WANT to be pushed by her, I wouldn't even mind my mother shouting at me for not getting my target grades. I seriously think that I would do better in school if my mother pushed me a little bit.

    Is there anyone here who has parents like this? If so, how do you stay motivated? Because atm I just don't seem to be able to work, even though I really want to.
