How do I convince my parents to let me go out with my friends more?

As you know this is spring break and I have been invited to go out five times, but I can't go! My dad doesn't want to hear it. He says I can only go to parties and they come,I don't know... one time a month?? I feel trapped staying at home all the time babysitting my brother! Theirs this boy-girl party on Sunday, but I didn't ask them yet because a guy friend invited me & my dad shows anger towards the subject of guys! I really wanna go! so how do I convince my parents to let me go the party and let me hang with my friends more often?

You can earn their trust by showing them you are responsible. Some ways to do this are to:

* Make sure your grades are up (ask them where they would like to see your grades & then let them see you are making an effort to get them there)
* Bring your friends around your house so that your parents get to know & trust them. Maybe when you're babysitting so it's not so boring for you?
* Call when you somewhere to let them know you're ok
* Be on time when you say you'll be home.

Ask them what else besides the above it would take to show them you are responsible and gain their trust.

How old are you? It may be that they will be more comfortable when you reach a certain age as well, as hard as that is when other parents are more lenient. Dad's are very protective of their teenage girls, especially because they were once teenage boys once!! It's a good thing, trust me :)

Remember they are only being strict because they love & care about you.

Talk to them, it'll get better. Good luck!

No problem, good luck!! Don't worry about missing the parties, the girl from the good family that can't be at all of them is always the most desirable in the end anyway. :)

You can tell them "I can get out of the house!" or you can say " you guys always say you want me to have lots of friends but you won't let me hang out with them!!??" :)

First of all don't say it's a party lol. Parties to parents mean sex and drugs and alcohol. Just ask if you can hang out with your girl friends. Sometimes you just have to lie. The older you get the more they'll trust you. As long as you aren't a trouble maker. If you don't have good grades in school try getting them better. That will help convince them your a smart responsible girl. Or you can bribe them by making them breakfast or doing their chores. I bet they'd like that.

Wow strict parents. My friend had really strict parents too. Have your parents talk to the other parents. If that doesn't work than probably nothing will.

I'm 16 and I have the same problem! I'm a straight A student, I have a good job, I come home on time, do as I'm told, clean the house, and do more than I'm asked to do, but they still don't trust me. Well it's mainly my dad. He doesn't trust me at football games to go over and hang out with to of my best friends who are in band and that I never see anymore! I need help please!!! I don't know what else to do!! And in a few years I'll be movin out and goin to college to get a degree in health care and medicine!!

to let your mum and dad let you go out there are some simple steps
this is them

1. earn there trust by showing you are responsible and no what to do when you are out and how to behave when you are out.

2.be nice and polite on any occasion and not just at the dinner table.

3.do you chores all ways and make shore you sweet talk them all the time.

4.tell them that you have been very good in school and show them that you are trying at school PS make shore that you have higher levels on your work. or say you have higher levels than yous well.

5.let them put on what ever they want on.

6. then ask nicely

7. this is the last one if that one doesn't work then do some more nice things and say to your dad i love your job i look up to you and then say to your mum you look so sweet and cute and that you should be a model.and then ask again and flash you eyes and do a cute puppy dog face and it should work. good luck .look for me on

bye
hoped you enjoyed bye
PS it does work because i have done it and i got to do what ever i want and i can now go out when ever i want.
