Parents made me break up with my BF two months ago because we were sneaking around, sneaking out, and he was controlling and we were both jealous, he came to my work to spend breaks with me, we both constantly lied, ect.
How do i convince my parents to give us another shot for a healthy, stable relationship?
I am not allowed to talk to him at all, and i know it was my parents who didnt want the relationship- not his, or so he says. My parents think that i think that his family and he wants nothing to do with me ever again and that if i contact him that his family will get a restraining order on me. Not the case. Complete opposite, actually. Except i want to be a part of his life and be with him- and he wants the same thing.

Unfortunately, I don't think there will be much convincing, or if you tried, it wouldn't work. You say you want a stable, healthy relationship but you won't have that. I knew the second you said you were both jealous, and he was controlling. A healthy relationship doesn't mean that one person is controlling and the other complies. And, though jealousy CAN be a healthy part of the relationship sometimes, it's not great ALL the time. These things you need to work on in order to get to that healthy relationship status.
However, your parents seem pretty much made up about their thoughts. I think it's best if you comply with their rule, and once you turn 18 you could rethink that since you'll be an adult in the eyes of the law.
