hi. childhood is very difficult time. one hand you want to enjoy/have fun and on the other hand you try living upto the parents expectations . parents wants to hear good things about their children. they feel proud when others praise kids for their good manners,talents,neatness,punctuality,education....etc. and if don't live upto their expectation, they start comparing you with neighbours kids or your friends. kids feel bad when they see that their parents like other kids than him/her. did it happened to you and how it affected you? or maybe it is not that bad as iam thinking?

It made me upset, ofcourse! I am their kid but then they wanted me to be like somebody else. They should have exchanged me for the kid they are comparing me with. Every one is unique, besides, I am the outcome of their...whatsoever it was. So they just have to deal with it, live with it.
