Got a party to go but stuck with a curfew?! UGH! Here are some ways to ask your parents to extend your curfew and so you can get your groove on that upcoming party!

1) Be Responsible
If you currently have a curfew, make sure to always get home on time. This will build trust with your parents and show them you will do the same with a later curfew.

2) Ask respectfully
Don't demand a later curfew and don't scream if your parents don't allow you to stay out later than you want. Show respect to your parents and ask nicely.

3) Make your case
Tell them where you are going and when you will be back. Assure them that you are going to a safe place and that they have nothing to worry about! 

4) Invite a sibling
Parents always feel safer when they know you are with someone else they trust so invite your brother or sister out with you! This way your parents will feel much more comfortable letting you stay out late! 

5) Reassure with friends
If you can't ask your siblings to come along, let your parents know that a friend they know and trust will be coming with you!

If all else fails, compromise and meet your parents in the middle! They might feel comfortable letting you stay out a bit late instead of super late!
