I have a problem, my mom wont let me go to a sleepover with my friend, because their mom and dad are not home (17years old btw)

I am not allowed to go to a sleepover to a friend because their parents arent home... I am 17 years old. They are overprotective. I am thinking about lying. Should i lie and go? There are chances of my mom calling my friends mom S: If i say they are not home, she wont let me no chance... What should i do need help?!?!?!

I'm sorry to be "that person", but you should trust your mom's judgement about this.

Have "the talk" and asked them why your not allowed to go. Give them reasons why you are old enough and mature.

Always respect your parents decision never go against it when you have children then they will respect you and your decisions also forget the sleepover read the Bible it will scare the hell out of you love your parents and do as they ask God will bless you for your decision to obey

Well if they wont allow you to go to a sleepover invite your friend to your house for a sleepover with your parents permission then they will know your safe and okay and don't lie it only makes things worser and i don't want you getting in trouble in any way so just ask if your friend can spend the night at your house

What I do is just say "I'm going, goodbye!" and leave. For me it doesn't really matter because I don't do anything to warrant suspicion. I'm never mean or rude to her about it, and I pretty much do whatever I want. You just have to set the situation to your liking. Besides, compared to what I could be doing, I am a god-send. (LOL) Don't lie to her, just go and have fun, make a point to never lie! Your mother is just looking out for you and making sure you are okay, I know you don't appreciate it right now, but you will. Just don't do anything you'd be afraid to tell her.

Your parents may let you get away with disrespect like that but if any child left my house to do something i expressly told them not to do they would be grounded for eternity, lose priveleges and most of their electronics would go missing VERY quickly. Most parents expect to be obeyed.

There are certain circumstances where that no longer matters.

I rarely mean disrespect by what I do.

So..... You are looking for encouragement to LIE to your parents.
Let''s think about this for a sec.

Are these the same parents who let you drive their car? Are these the same parents who pay (if not all) the bulk of your auto insurance? Are these the parents who have paid all your Drs bills, food bills, and have provided a roof over your head for 17 years?

And you want other people to help you decide to LIE to them!

Boy. I wish I could be the one to tell you to do that.

But I am not. I agree with Mom and Dad.

Yeah, i guess your right. Well i cant lie. So i have to do what snowstar told me. And if that wont work. I dont know what to do. The only thing i know is that i wont accept it.

They have already told you. Be honest. How many times do you have to hear it?
Report as
WELL, i just said youre right... I will be honest... But i wont accept it. And i did not ask anyone to lie for me. I asked what other people would do and for help. Thats what this page is for.

You think that being a pest, saying: Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy...... I wanna go. I wanna, i wanna, i wanna, i wanna...... Does that make you sound mature, responsible That is what snowball said to do. You are not going to 'Sit them down' and tell them anything! That's funny. Good for mom and Dad.

There are too many stories on ASK about.... He did 'it' can I be pregnant. to allow (by a responsible parent) to happen.

You sound like a smart guy, A lot of people would agree with you. But i cant understand whats so dangerous two big boys in one place. Up in FKING Norway. What could happen?
Report as
Aasmund, there is so much that could happen. Your parents fear for your safety, you should trust them.
Report as
As for tractortug, I completely agree with you on some of those points, but at the same time, if people don't break off from what their parents want, they will never grow up.
Report as
AASmond, I would be worried, that two teens, who knew that no one would be home, would invite some girls over, and..... well....... You get the idea. Un chaperoned teens tend to raise havoc when you put 1+1 together. It often equals 3!
Report as
Sorry. AASMund
Report as
Haha gotta love it xD I agree that teens aren't the safest when they fool around, but who is? I know they can't support a child right now. Just give him a break, parents worry about the unknown.

Don't want to rain on your parade, but your mom is just doing her job. From one of your other posts , you said you didn't want to be around your parents because you wouldn't have fun. That sends up a red flag ! Maybe your mom knows best after all! Chill, and do not lie to your mom ; either have him sleep at your place or stay home and talk it out with your parents .

Who, wants their parents around when we are pulling jokes and watching television with mabye sexual speeches and stuff like that. Its normal but its creeping me out.
Report as
I understand that part, but when you have teenagers of your own , you will probably be a lot like your mom . Have a chat with her, good luck !

Good for your parents. You should never lie. Youll get found out and totally lose your parents trust and you may never get to stay any where at all. And what if something happens while youre there?
