My advice is that since you are 19 and supposed to be an adult, then you should act like one and maybe they will respect you as one. Instead of asking their permission and assuming they will take it negatively. Why not take the approach of you being excited about going and you are basically just sharing the information with them. "Mom! We're planning this awesome trip. etc...." I know you are young, but you don't always have to act like you are. You're 19 now, you area allowed to make your decisions. If your mom says something like, "What?! You're not going to California!" You should say something to the affect of, "Mom, I'm 19, this is going to be a great trip. I'm going with some of my closest friends who I know and respect very much." Basically, handle the situation like an adult, and don't cry if they react negatively. You have to be confident and stand up for yourself.
Now... if you're known for being a screw-up. Don't expect any support from your parents.
True. I understand. But, now that you are older, you have to start doing things to build your parents' respect as an adult. I bet one reason they don't feel good about letting you do big things like this is because they don't have confidence that you can handle yourself. Parents are always going to be overprotective of their children. Honestly, just show some confidence and that you are a responsible woman and you might get your way. :) Good luck!
Any time! :)
How did it go? :)
Dude I had the same problem last year (at 17 not 19).I was told I couldn't go to Padre Island with my college friends (which is logical). I'm not sure how you should ask but don't lie. Your still under their roof and they could always cut you off. Plus **** happens and you end up with $400 missing from your bank account and having to wonder what happend after waking up somewhere on a beach in Mexico after being roofied. Spring Break is no joke.
should discuss with your parent before pay for the room...leave them a note and just go is bad..you are not goin to enjoy your holiday, and when you get home..a world war 3 ignited !n
leave them a note and just go
yeah but they would get over it in time, i always wanted to go to spring break but never got to do it " sad face violin music"
