How do you convince your parents to let you go on a 4 day trip that's 1389 miles away from home?(It's school sponsered.)
Hey girly! When asking for something like this, it's important to show your parents how responsible you are. Maybe make a deal with them. Like, you'll take on new chores to help earn the money to go, and prove that you're responsible. Or, make a power point or other presentation to show why you want to go, what the benefits would be, and why they should let you go. They'll be impressed if you put in the effort

The trick is to give your parents the feeling that you are responsible. My parents are letting me do things that i wasnt even allowed to think about doing last year. But sometimes there are special conditions like where you live or who you hang out with that makes them more protective. I think we will all be like that when we grow up and have kids, I think its normal to do that.
Things like having a bf, going to certain movies, having my own phone and hanging out with friends at night are things my mom and dad wouldnt even let me do until recently.

That really stinks! Luckily my parents don't have rules about my phone. I don't really text that much anyway though.
by Alle93 on 7/28/2011 2:13:31 PM

Hey girl! Well it does kind of depend on how old you are and who your friends are, but it is unfair that you're not allowed to spend the night. Try being on your absolute BEST behavior for a few days, then sit down with your mom (& possibly dad) and talk about the situation. Tell them calmly and reasonably why you think you should be able to spend the night, then ask them why they don't want you to. Try to work something out so your parents don't have to worry about you and you can still have fun with your friends. It might be a good idea to rehearse what you're going to say, but don't read off a piece of paper. If you're more comfortable, you could even give them a note telling them what you think and why you want to talk about it. Hope this helps! Good luck girlie! <3

I may not have a cell phone but trust me, I had a step Grandmother, who controlled everything. And now she lives with my and my life is a living war with her. She never did like me. So I know how you feel.
