Question: I have a D+ in Physical Science and have to get it signed by my dad. He will seriously get mad and scream at me and call the teacher and make me go to after school homework convention! I have to get it signed today for tomorrow and he says if I get a D or F he'll take away the TV and computer so please help!

Make sure its just you two and you have placed him in a good mood. Which means he has a full stomach (so maybe after dinner), isn't tired (so don't tell him after a hard days work), and hasn't had a horrible day (don't tell him after he finds out his car has been robbed). Once he is in a good mood, you can tell him you want to talk to him. Let him know that you have some news for him, which you sincerely apologize for, and will work hard to make better. Tell him you got a D+ in Physical Science and MOST IMPORTANTLY, tell him you are ready to face the consequences of it. He may get upset, but as a parent, trust me, the yelling and screaming won't be as harsh, when you see your kids step up to the plate and take responsibility. He may take away the TV and computer, but since you were 'so mature' about it, he may only take it away for a couple days. GOOD LUCK!

Hmm, how about I explain it then you can do your own work which will help you to learn. So start off by drawing a diagram for this problem which is a rectangle inside a bigger rectangle. Have one side of the outside rectangle = x and the other equal y. Find the formula for solving the perimeter with variables x and y and know that it's equal to 156cm. Find the formula for the area. So you'll realise you have two equations and 2 variables so isolate one variable and plug into the other equation so you just have one variable in one of the equations for the frame and solve. The rest should be straight-forward.

A D+ is better than a D which is a fair grade, just be honest with him like everyone says, and he'll understand. Keep working hard and try to put as much effoert into it. At the end you will figure out it is worth it. Stay ontop of things so you don't lose track of your work and study, study, study!LOL Good luck! And don't forget to STUDY! Hee hee!

lol forge it:) i did that back in high school and middle school. i practiced my moms signature over and over again until it was mint. never got caught. idk. dont do that..i dont want to be the bad influence here. just show your dad and tell him its "temporary" i did that once too. and he gave me time to get the grade up and i did and i was never yelled at. just be like "here dad, i have this D+, but this isnt my real grade, its just temporary because i didnt finish some of my work, but i am working on finishing it. ill get you a new grade sheet in about a week with the updated grade" if he falls for that one, you better get that grade up to a C or better. then you will be off the hook:)

Originally Answered: I'm 13 and in 8th grade. In what ways can I be more independent and show my parents that I'm growing up?
Try asking them if you can cook dinner for the family once a week. They can supervise, but they can also see that you can research a recipe and try it out. Then start packing your own lunches for school. Again, research what's healthy. Prepare it yourself. Also, make your bed and do your own laundry. All these things will show them that you're independent. After this, explore taking an after-school class. Do it with a legitimate organization. It can be band or theater at school, or Boys & Girls Clubs. That gets you away from your parents and you learn some skill sets, too. If your school has Academic Decathalon, join it. You might have to wait for high school, though. It means studying after school with other kids, so it gets you out of the house. You should read up on "helicopter parents." It sounds like your parents.
