Re: Some unfortunate things as a Teenager... READ!
Well first off, I'd stop saying "READ!" at the end of all your threads. It makes me not want to read it.
But back on to topic, the way I deal with my parents when we disagree is to not ask for anything or anything to do with the topic that we had a disagreement about for a few weeks. Just try not to make them mad (Like don't even ask if you can play drums) for a couple weeks. After that, he might soften up and let you play.
PFOG's advice is great too.
