I'm sure that they do understand, & I'm sure that they have their reasons for not allowing you to go as well. Why not have a sit down with your folks & talk about it. That way you know that they know how you feel, & maybe they'll give you a reason that they don't want you to go. Don't be to surprised if their response is because I said so
I'm sure they do understand that. They also understand the inherent dangers of letting you go to town with your friends. It is not necessarily you or your friends that your parents mistrust. It is the predators, thugs, and lowlife's we are forced to share this planet with.
Well, I'm not mean or anything like that. But if you want advice here you go. My parents are protective and only let me go with my friends if they know them a lot. So maybe what your parents need is to see who your friends are.
We've all been there. No matter how much freedom our parents give us as a child we see or at least perceive others have more. Just talk calmly with your parents. Do things that show them you're responsible and things will change. Maybe not as fast as you'd like but they will. It sounds like your parents care about your well being. That's something to be happy about. Not every child has that
