Hey guys, so I noticed that I ask around lot of stuff on here… I hope that I’m not annoying anyone…

Hey Juanita! Don’t feel horrible and trapped in shame. I know you really want to have fun, but unfortunately obedience to your parents comes first. You can go ahead just as long as your parents agree, maybe you can ask again and promise them you’ll be accountable. Even if they don’t agree initially maybe later on if you continue to behave well, they’ll allow you to ride the four-wheeler.
God bless you Juanita 🙂

You’re not a bother at all–I love that you’re so active on PI!
I know exactly how you feel, it’s very frustrating isn’t it? The best thing you can do is talk to your parents. Ask them why they don’t want you doing whatever it is you want to do, then be prepared with a mature and calm explanation as to why it’s fine. For instance, they probably don’t want you riding a four wheeler because it can be dangerous. So be prepared with reasons why you’re responsible and competent enough to ride one.
Also know that as you get older your parents will probably relax their restrictions on you and let you start making your own decisions. In the meantime, communicate with them!! Don’t just sit around being angry at them. (Like I did a lot when I was a teenager! lol) 🙂
I always thought talking to my parents wouldn’t do any good, but they surprised me a time or two. It’s hard, because most of the time you’re annoyed so it can be difficult not yell or sound whiney, but learning to speak sensibly when you’re upset is a great way to practice and gain more self control.

Also, I think you should give yourself some credit for following your conscience. That’s not easy!
