Protective parents found out i was watching the vampire diaries.. Please help bigger deal then it seems

so i was watching the vampire diaries on Netflix and used my family's account. my dad doesn't pry and my mom wouldn't kill me for it. so i watched it to the middle of season two and one night i overhear my brother dad and mom talking in the living room. " what is this!? it looks creepy" " she watched so much of it!" " she LIED she said she only watched an episode" i now hate my brother and im mad because my parents are so prying and over protective. im 14 and its so hard to find good things to watch and everyone talked about it then i got addicted. how to cope with my dad who now thinks im a terrible child, and is there any way to download the vampire diaries on my ipod through something besides Netflix? im done with Disney channel suck it up. my dad never approved of that either anyway -_-

Wow...I have a 14 yo also...your parents would freak if they knew what I let her watch. BUT...they are your parents, and as long as you live under their roof you have to follow their rules. My suggestion to you is that you ask your mom to sit down and watch a few episodes with you...maybe she'll realize it's not so bad. Good luck!

You go up to them and be honest that you watched so much of it, then ask your parents if they'd like to watch it with you.

Are they really making a big deal out of it, or are you being super defensive and determined that you're going to watch it with or without your parents' approval? Ask them to watch it with you, that's the best way to win parents over.

Well then ask your mom to watch it with you. Start from the first episode where there's less sex. And, their house, their rules. If you can't handle them flipping out, then don't break the rules.

Since from your story you say they said "it sounds creepy". They apparently don't know what it is about. Have them watch it with you so they truly understand what it is about. It seems like there is a lot of supposition and eavesdropping going on with very little real communication and understanding.
