My parents let me go to the mall with some friends for the first time this summer.
I'm not allowed to date (except dances) until I'm 16
I can't date anyone my parents don't see appropriate (no facial piercings, no weird hair, no strange sense of style)
I can't date anyone without all A's
I've never been allowed to go to halloween parties
I can't use the internet or text after 8 PM
I can't straighten my hair more than three times a week
I have strict parents, alright. But if you compromise, everyone's happy. It may not work with your parents (I can't compromise with mine), but I can still manage to have fun. They're just trying to keep you safe.
