Ways to trick your parents to go for a College trip
A college trip is on the cards and you really do not want to miss it because it will be fun and your best friend or your crush will also be going….but you are having those parents who won’t allow you to go because they care for you and still think that you are still a small kid?
It really is a knotty situation and convincing your parents is quite an uphill task. Well, let us help you. Try the tricks given below and who knows may be.
Parents are always concerned for your security. First of all, ease such tensions.
1) Choose time and place wisely
First and foremost thing to be taken care of is to learn about your parents’ mood and then take your step. Don’t start your talk when they are not in a fine frame to listen. Look for a place where you can talk peacefully without any hindrance.
2) Give your parents every small detail
The basic reason parents don’t allow going for picnic is that they are concerned for your safety. So, quell such fears at the outset itself. Provide them with every minute detail like your departure/arrival date and time, where you will be staying and all the places you’ll be visiting.
3) You are not going to the battlefield
Convince them that the trip is really not dangerous. Besides, you are not going alone. Your friends will be there with you and you already have the list of emergency contacts in case of conjuncture.
4) Appreciate their concerns
Give their care due respect but make them understand that you are not a kid anymore. One day you’ll have to step outside to explore the world and your parents can’t really follow you everywhere. You need to learn to take care of yourself and parents should help you in the process.
5) Promise to give them your whereabouts
Pledge it in front of them that you will keep informing them about your stay and do so when you get the permission or else it may hamper your future plans.
You cannot be sure that the reason for your parents’ dissent is your security only. There may be some other cause as well.
6) Homework on parents concerns
Try to figure out as to why they are saying no. It may be a case that your schedule is not convenient for them. Sort out such a problem by doing extra work yourself.
7) Do well in studies
Now, parents never want studies to suffer. So, it is always better to put in extra effort and get good marks in the weekly test. This will make mom-dad relieved about your studies and may reward you with the permission.
8) Money problems
It may be a case that their pocket is not allowing your parents to fund you picnic. Request them to fund it this time and you will not ask for anything for a while. You can always contribute to the family income by doing part time job, if possible.
After listening to your parents’ point of view, present your perspective. Do this in calm manner with utmost respect to your parents.
9) Benefits of the trip
Explain to them that the trip is not only about fun and frolic. It is a learning process. Tell them that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. You will learn about new places, new people and adapting to new situations. You will return as changed human being having a new meaning of life. The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page.
10) Idle mind is a devil’s place
Tell them that you will get bored anyhow as classes won’t be conducted due to majority of the class going to picnic. Moreover, you really do not have much to do rather than sitting idle.
11) It may be your last time
Don’t overdo it but tell them that it may be your last time out with your friends as most of them would be leaving after the examinations. So, ask your parents to give the permission for living your life to the extreme.
12) Negotiate a deal
You take some, you give some. Strike a deal with your parents that you’ll do whatever they wish you to do once you allow them to go on this trip. It’s pure business mate.
13) Give example of friends’ parents
It really makes the parents feel guilty. Give example of your friends’ parents who have allowed your pal to go on a picnic. Make your parents feel that they really are over-concerned and it is not a very serious thing as well.
14) Take help from third party
Ask your friends or someone elder to you (who is also going on the trip) to help you in seeking permission. Tell them to convince your parents by hook or crook, like they won’t be able to enjoy if you won’t go.
15) Don’t force them
Don’t keep them on their heels. Give them some time to think about it. Believe me, pressurizing them would piss them off. They will make a rational decision.
16) Get upset but stay calm
On denial, get upset but keep a hold on your emotions. Leave sadly giving due respect to your parents’ decision. They will surely feel bad as they don’t want to see their child upset. Who knows, maybe it can work on your favor.
