How can I convince my parents to let my join K12 online school?
I'm just going into 8th grade next year. I'm not really socially awkward but I don't like working with others, and I don't like waking up early:). I'm always tired and grumpy when I get home and I have anxiety attacks on sunday nights when I have school the next day, and in mornings. I have 4 friends, and I have a pretty bubbly personality if I trust people, but I have trust issues and that makes me really shy around teachers so I can't ask questions in person. I'm an a-b average student, but I feel like I'm struggling in school. I've never talked to my parents about this, and it makes me nervous because I don't like talking to adults in person. They know I hate school because I always ask if we can move to where my cousins live because I have more friends there than I do at my school, but my dad can't leave his job and he says people are the same everywhere. I really need help, and sorry if this is long but I thought it would be eaisier to answer if you know more about me. I'm not really used to asking for advice, because I have an advice coulumn (anonymous of course) but this one stumps me. Thanks 10 POINTS BEST ANSWER!

Well, you should be comfortable around your parents! :) Ask them anything, and they'll give you the best answer possible. Just say what's on your mind. Tell them you would rather join your online school, because you feel that it will benefit you more. You will feel more comfortable and able to get your work done... More
