My parents force me to go tuition while I am under 16 so what can I do to not go tuition


Hi there, 

Thank you for contacting us; well done for reaching out for some support. We are sorry that your parents are forcing you to do extra tuition. It sounds frustrating to feel forced into doing something you do not want, and no one has the right to make you feel like that. Do your parents know how you are feeling? You have the right to talk to them and express your thoughts. You did not mention how your grades were in school. Is it possible that your parents are worried about your grades and feel you need extra support to pass a subject? Having a chat with one of your teachers might also help to discuss your grades and how you feel about the extra tuition.  

Having an open and honest conversation with your parents and teacher is important to let them know how you feel. Would it be possible to tell your parents that you can keep up with your homework and ask them for a break from tuition to see if you can keep up on your own? Maybe come up with a plan letting them know If you start struggling, you would be open to going back to tuition. How does that sound?
