My parents won't let me go outside without being watched by them. I now have no self-confidence or faith in my self but they still acted like I'm stupid and that the dog or my brother and sister are more important.When I was in year 6 lots of my classmates where walking home but I had to walk home with my mum ( WHO WORKS AT THE SCHOOL)when the house was 2 minutes away. Then after school, I wasn't allowed to go out to the park which is only a few minutes walk away from home. I am now in year 7 and want to go out with friends after school but I'm not allowed.
PLEASE HELP ME CONVINCE MY PARENTS
PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT 11 NOW BUT MY YOUNGER SISTER IS

chill you're only 11. I know it may seem like all your friends get ''privileges'' and you don't but just take it as your parents looking out for you. I mean you are quite young tbh. maybe when u hit your teens then they will give you more freedom. just wait it out you parents wont always be there for you when u grow up so make the most of it now

When the first time you were ever allowed to go out with friends was at the age of 16 and then you come on TSR to see threads like these 🌚🙂

You're parents' behaviour is perfectly fine and normal. Just because many of your friends do something doesn't make it right for you. This is something I say to my younger sibling all the time.

UK has laws that don't allow people under a certain age to be left alone, I believe under 15? I might be wrong about the age though, this was changed a few times.

does nobody hear remember what it was like to be in year 7? Not being allowed to walk home on your own / with friends is odd, but remember you are just out of primary school and your parents probably haven't adjusted to that yet.

You aren't allowed to be on tsr if you are really 11 years old. Your parents are just being protective. You should be happy because anything could happen while you are out with friends. Which garden are you talking about back or front? I understand the front is dangerous because anything could happen but the back garden is usually safe if there are fences up separating the neighbourhood gardens.

Your parents are being protective. Be grateful! Honestly, at 11 you shouldn't even be on TSR. Just invite your friends over to your place, or something.

I'm 90 and I can't go outside.
...Probably because my wheelchair is broken. But still.

Lots of stabbings recently. Not safe. I don't blame them in this context.

This is addressed at the forum:

It's no good denying kids certain privileges that others have, without having something better or comparable replace them with. Denying kids the opportunity to socialize with others, because of crime rates, or because you may not like the local culture, isn't good enough. What are they going to do instead with that time? Play video games? Sleep until 11 on weekends? Or do maths 6 hours a day instead?

People need other people. ffs. Or they go mad.

If you can at least replace that lost time with family outings, or clubs and societies that such kids attend... you're on the right track. Simply saying "no" with no explanation or better alternative, is frankly quite immature and damaging itself.
