    Ask your parents to let you off your restrictions. Go up to your parents and ask them nicely if you can have your privileges back. If they say no, don't throw a temper tantrum or scream. This will only make things worse and they will probably put you on restrictions longer or even ground you.

Tips

  • Be very nice to your parents.
  • If your parents need help with something, help them. This will make them proud of you.
  • If your backyard is a mess, do yard work. Rake the leaves and mow the lawn, this will make your parents happy.

Warnings

  • Be careful when using humor or sarcasm towards your parents. What you may find funny, your parents may take it the wrong way and see it as talking back.
  • If you have really mean parents, this guide probably won't help you. If you have nice parents, they will probably let you off the hook if you follow these steps thoroughly and carefully.
  • Remember, this is a gradual process. Don't be super cheery and try to act perfect all at once. Your parents will suspect something.
