Parents want me to be Little Miss Perfect--like my sis

 
My older sister is a goody-goody and gets great grades. She is also great at sports. She doesn't care about boys, makeup and teenager things. My parents expect me to be like her. I stink at sports and get bad grades. How do I tell my parents I don't want to be compared to her?
 
Dear Compared,
Remind them that you have different strengths and interests. It's fine to enjoy clothes and crushes. But get a jump start on the new school year. Keep up in class, stay organized with homework and join an after school activity or two, like chorus, band, newspaper, theater, student council or community service. Make it a great new grade!
