    My parents (mum, specifically) won't let me leave the house for a concert in November because apparently I should be studying for my exams (that are in May). The concert is on a Friday night, so it wouldn't even be interrupting any school activities. Is that even fair?

    That is unfair, you don't need to be studying as soon as you get home from school, I didn't study until about April for my GCSEs and I did fine, my parents weren't bothered if and when I revised, they just let me get on with it. You need breaks and some fun between studying otherwise you'll burn out and do worse in your exams, it will probably also make you a lot more stressed and you'll lack motivation by the time the exams do some around.

    In my opinion and my mum would also agree that letting a teen at this crucial time in their teen have a small break or fun every now and again is need for distress as well as just breaking free from all the school work you get all worked up about, I would say your mum is being quite tight tbh

    Frankly, you are lucky to have parents who care enough about you to be so interested in you and your future. There are many young people out there, including on this site who are struggling alone and with parents who don't give a **** for them. So you're going to miss a concert. It's not the end of the world, is it? Suck it up. There will be plenty more concerts. X

    Depends on how old you are.

    Know your rights though, you should be free to do what you want. You must make the ultimate decision. No one can use force to make you do what you want. So long as youre not like 13 or something.

    but some ppl use the wrong methods, My parents didn't let me do English lit because they worried about my future. I still regret listening to them to this day.
