First things first No one is perfect on this planet and second you need to remind yourself as long as you're doing your best it's all you have to offer and if you fail at something like high grades, as long as you did your best than it is NOT your fault. To want to be a perfect daughter is impossible since no one is perfect. My daughter and I are Best Friends and all she's ever had to do is love me, remind me when I'm down and show me respect. As parents we've all been disappointed at some point but it doesn't mean we don't love our children. Talk to your parents and when you can see they're getting disappointed tell them from your heart how you're feeling and always take the time to tell them that you love them. I know for a fact my daughter loves me but it still feels pretty nice when she gives me a big hug and says I Love You Mom. Keep the communication wide open with your parents, they're not going to always agree and that's OK. You don't always agree with them and that's OK. Treat everyday as if it may be your last because really who knows ? Take Care Dear {hugs}

RachelleDD is right, arrieta14. There is no such thing as "perfect" anybody. You are setting yourself up for a fall if you do that. Just strive to be the best that you can be. That's all that any parent could ask of his child. Be open with them especially if you have any problems or facing any difficulties. They are there for you, no matter what.

There is no such thing as "perfect", I dont think thats what your parents would want because there is no such thing. Just listen to them, consider their advice on certain things. Be true to yourself and be all that you can be. There will be times that you will disappoint them, its normal and natural to do so. Study and achieve but do it for yourself and your future. Do not be afraid to talk to them, they will be more understand than you think. They only want whats best for you.
