    Getting around your parents

    I am 16 years old, carless, and living at home.
    a lot of time my outings and sarges are cut short by my parents' strict limitations.
    What methods did you/do you use to get around strict parents in terms of where you can be and until what time of night?
    any techniques?

    Get a job, rent an appartment, and move out.
    I don't know about you, but where I'm from a guy can get married at 16, so if your parents have that much control over you at the age of 16 I really don't think there's an easier answer.

    Erm, "okay." Yeah, moving out is great advice, at the ripe age of 16. You know, in grade 11 or 12, not even done high school. Just move out, great advice, I agree wholeheartedly.
    See why they won't let you out. My parents do that too, don't worry, but it's cause I'm absent minded, forgetful, & do stupid stuff . They want to shelter you because they want to make sure you're safe. You need to make them trust you more, do the little things that show you're independent before doing the big things.
    A lot of young guys often don't get this.. "Mom! I wanna stay out past 12:00! I'm not a little kid anymore! Can you tidy my room & do my laundry please...?"
    The more mature & independent you act, the more so they will view you.

    Mobile phone - Communication
    = 1 brownie point.
    Give and take - Cleaning/cooking
    = 3 brownie points.
    Reward scheme - Talk about this with them. Achievement. Goals etc etc.
    = 3 brownie points
    Schedules rotation - Extra early sunday-wed. Extra late/time thur-sat.
    = 2 brownie points
    Overall, just talk to them about it. Talk, talk, and talk again. What you don't ask for, you don't get.

    Obviously someone didn't realise I was joking...
    But hey, you know not all countries have the same educational systems. In mine, alot of guys are finished with their education at the age of 16 and go straight into full-time jobs and take on adult responsibilities - so I guess my tongue-in-cheek suggestion isn't so unbelievable afterall!
    My main point is that controlling parents aren't going to give up their control so easily, and in the end it really could come down to waiting until you're ready to leave the nest.
    On another note, Sargeing at 16, if only I knew then what I know now, lol.

    You should list the strict limitations.
    It's that "earn the trust because we feed you and put a roof over your head". It's good intentions and you kind of have to roll with it and respect them.
    Actually living at home you could get some cooking skills going. Learn to work the barbeque without burning yourself. Hang out with dad, get some friends together in front of your place and just do sports stuff... mowing the neighbor's lawn in the summer, raking leaves in the fall, shovelling the ice in the winter, cleaning pools, landscaping. Gets your body in shape, girls and even moms usually flirt with you even if you're in halfway decent shape. It's "being responsible" at the same time you can get conversations going (because you'll charge enough to get away with not busting your ass).
    Another one to consider, doing volunteer work, trying different places until you have one that is to your liking. Some hospitals have teenagers volunteer, same with EMTs. It gives you lifesaving training which I think is really cool to have to begin with. Radio stations sometimes look for people to do promotions at too. Church bake sales, retreats, summer camps.. there's a ton of places to go and further your agenda. Stuff like the walk for breast cancer and diabetes even. Doing good causes where a lot of girls and women are around taking part in. Holiday part time work..
    The strict limitations are usually due to your parents breaking rules when they were teenagers.
    There is something to be said for afterschool activities, staying overnight at a friend's house, etc. Someone's usually got the "cool" mom.
    Day sarging, friends with DHV, open communication with the parents should help, stay away from booze and drugs until you're 18, or anything that requires calling your parents at 3 in the morning.
    Hopefully you have a "cool" older relative that is willing to take you out.
