Doritos rule. Did you expect to get a new car for doing what you are supposed to do in school like study? Now if you were in the top 2% of your class then he should make a big deal but if your honor role is just an A- average or better than you have too much of a sence of entitlement. I applaud your dad for not stroking your ego which would do you a disservice in prepairing you for the real world. Keep trying to do good in school and you can make something of yourself.
woww... all the people saying it's not a big deal need to chill the fuck out. I'm sure all OP was lookin for from her dad was a "congrats honey!" or maybe like, dinner at her favorite restaurant. in highschool, things like that aren't considered mediocre, they ARE a big deal, an she deserves a little recognition for her hard work! I was in cheer in hs and it's pretty darn time consuming. needless to say maintaining your grades, let alone getting on the honor roll, isn't easy when you have an extracurricular activity such as cheer.
shut up 132. I make the honor roll every year, and I have mma, drum playing, water polo, and skiing on the side. and I have a part time job. so shut the hell up. if I can do it with all that, I'm sure it's not to hard with cheerleading. and btw, yeah, I'm in high school. I'm a junior.
my dad is so ADD. He does that kind of thing all the time. It's not often I do something I'm really proud of, so of course I want to tell my parents about it. My mom hardly ever makes a comment about it, and my dad will just say something random, too. FYL, bc I know exactly how that feels, OP.
same thing happened to me too. I got a scholarship at a dance convention that's worth alot of money and its pretty hard to get. all he said was, "have you finished your homework? you won't be getting any more scholarships if you don't do dance because i wont let you go to dance you failed all your classes". I don't get it.
Something like this. Unless you are valedictorian or won some regional championship for cheerleading, this isn't exactly a big deal. My reaction would've probably been somewhere between your mum's and your dad's. Work hard to feel the pride in your own efforts, not for validation of awards and compliments. Life will be pretty tough for you if you don't.
