read Grace Llewellyn's teenage liberation handbook, it is available from many bookstores including barnes and noble, and i found a copy at my public library. useful 4 convincing parents in 3 ways: it has a chapter devoted to convincing ur parents, info on making a serious plan which will help convince them ur serious, and lots of examples of successful homeschoolers. Also try Homeschooling for Excellence by David and Micki Colfax.
It depends on why ur parents don't like the idea. mayb ur parents r intimidated at the idea of having 2 b ur teacher? especially if they work that will b an issue, but just xplain that if they only teach u a couple hrs of lessons a day and then b available 2 answer questions u have, that could help. If they think they won't do as good a job of teaching u as teachers in a school then some good xamples should do it. if they r worried about college use the colfax book, and if they r worried about u bing home all day then look into some activities such as sports, clubs, library/community activities, jobs and volunteering u can do, and make friends with other homeschoolers. and start asking them 4 more help with homework, or 2 teach u their best skills, and use how much u learn as an argument when ur trying 2 convince them. good luck!!!!
