Need to persuade parents

I am starting to get more into paintballing and I have proposed to my parents that once every month or so, if I pay, all I need is them to drive me. Any suggestions on how to persuade my parents to let me go more.

Well tell them its not playing video games/drugs/illegal stuff. And its always to keep your grades good. As for a parent myself If my kids bring home a B's or better they get a hole hell of a lot compared to anything else. Probably wouldn't help if you even ask them to go even know you might think they would say no. My girlfriend and I go out and sometimes we bring the kids lol

Ask them..... Its honestly as simple as that. If they say no, ask why? Is it you not doing enough around the house, not pulling your weight in school? or do they just want a day that they don't have to do anything?....Talk to them about just dropping you off, and then coming at a set time to pick you up.

Its all negotiation. Give and Take. Even when your older and such. For me, its either pay bills, or play bills or buy that new marker that just released thats $700.....Pay bills or buy another case of paint.....Go to work, or sleep all day and have that much less money to spend on paintball...or bills.

Try to come to a compromise with them. Even see if you can get an alternate ride with a friend or something.....or use some of that money to put in their gas tank.
