This must be tough for you, absolutely. Have you ever given them any reason not to trust you? Once your parents lose trust, it's really difficult to earn it back. However, if you haven't done anything, this is irrelevant. Have you tried speaking to them about this and explaining how you feel? Holding this kind of conversation in a calm manner shows responsibility, which will certainly help your case.

If nothing seems to work, know that September really isn't far away and you will definitely have more freedom. Talking to your parents is really the only thing that you can go. However, I'd advise you to avoid losing your patience or yelling during the conversation, despite how difficult may be to do. This does not show that you are mature and will likely deter your parents from even considering what you're asking of them. Keep in mind that your parents do care about you and want what's best for you.

Can you talk to them about this? let them know your responsible and you can look after yourself and go out later, tell them your being left out because your friends are always going out to see movies but you can't.

'Cause there's no pride to be found when you follow sheep around..
