How to persuade my parents that
I can study abroad?
My high school proposes
an international exchange program.
I can choose a country that speaks another
language and go there for my last school year.
But my parents do not want to hear of it,
and I can’t even go to the info meeting.
What to do?
Have they told you what is the exact problem with you going to the meeting? It basically means you cannot even learn what they offer! You need to refute their arguments.
At least now, you can say that you need to find out if something is a problem or not.
Just accept it.
Find out what are their reasons to act like this. Maybe they cannot pay for your foreign education?
Tell them that you have savings and you won’t need their money. You do have savings, right?
Have you asked them what’s the problem? Once you know the answer, you’ll know how to persuade them.
Ask your grandparents to help convince them.
You can convince them by telling that will enrich your experience.
Parents are usually concerned about expenses and your safety. They do not think studying abroad will somehow help their child.
