2. Practice Negotiating

Negotiation is an important business skill, and you can start honing it using your parents. Don’t enter discussions with them thinking that you’ll get your own way. As with most things in life, you’re probably going to need to negotiate and find a compromise that you are both happy with. Lets pretend that you want a later curfew.

If you’re allowed out until 9pm at the moment, but would like to stay out until 10pm, make a case for 10:30pm or 11pm, and be prepared to send a text saying where you are and that you’ll be safe. That lets your parents compromise, but means you’ll both be happy. And if you only succeed in getting an extension until 9:30pm, grasp it and use it to show how responsible you are.
