Ok don’t freak out
I’m 17 and I’m not really allowed to have snapchat
I know people may say “get it secretly” but I respect my parents enough not to go behind their back.
The problem is that my parents have a very negative view of social media and it’s been fine throughout high school, this is cuz I had amazing friends who would keep me up to date on what was happening.
But it’s hard not to have it while everyone else around me does, as u can probably imagine
How can I convince my parents I’m not a small child anymore and that I’m responsible enough to have it??

You can send pictures and people might screenshot? Plus you can’t delete them once sent unlike other platforms

Yh I’m gonna ask them soon and explain it’s not as bad as they think it is, it’s just people around me have got up to no good on it so they heard about that and u know..
But they don’t go through my phone ever
So they trust me
Thanks for the advice

The real problem here is not Snapchat, it's their lack of trust with you. Have you done anything previously that merits lack of trust? I can understand parents being hesistant around the moment you enter into secondary school and everyone is eager, but at 17...

Pay particular notice from the bolded title 'The Effects of Helicopter Parents'

It's an incredibly damaging parenting style.
