Let’s just state the obvious, you are not getting an A+ in that class, it’s impossible. I just really needed an attractive headline. Now that I have your attention, this article is actually going to be about how to get your parents to say “yes” every time, in any situation.
For us students, our teenage years are probably the most memorable and amusing years of our lives and we just gotta enjoy them. Going to parties and having fun with our friends are moments that we will forever carry, so I think we should make the most out of them. Sometimes there is an obstacle that prevents us from going to parties, hanging out with friends, or attending other fun activities: our parents. For whatever reason, they will sometimes not grant us the permission to attend certain events, and in this article, I will give you a couple of strategies so you always get your parent’s approval, and never get stuck at home again.
1)Timing. I have learned this is probably the most important step when getting your parents to say “yes.” You need to find the perfect moment to make the question.
2) Be nice. This might sound a little obvious, but hear me out. Asking for permission after a day of doing your chores, and helping out around the house, will increase your chances by at least 50%.
3) Don’t accept no for an answer. Keep digging. Insist. Make your parents become so desperate and tired of you asking, that they have to say yes. Disclaimer: There are 2 ways your parents will respond to this technique. Either the way we already discussed, or the second way, the least peaceful way, in which you will not only stay at home, but you will need a pack of ice, a couple band aids, and a hug.
4) Become friends with your parent’s friends. Learn how to play your cards! Whenever you get the chance, go and be nice with your “tios” and “tias”; make them laugh. This should be your genuine attitude with everyone, but in this specific case, doing so will come in handy. When your parents don’t let you go somewhere, just give their friends a call. They could help you convince them.
5) The last technique is one that can only be used under extreme circumstances. Sneak out and don’t get caught! For school’s policy purposes, I am just kidding:)
