Want a little furry friend like a hamster, gerbil, rat, mouse or even a
degu? But your parents just won't let you? This article will tell you how to convince them.
Don't beg; try to start the subject slowly and research as much as you can! But also have a second choice in case your parents won't want your first choice pet. (e.g If you want a rat but they think a rat is a horrible creature start a new subject like hamsters)
SAVE MONEY!!! Parents obviously want to keep their money so start saving! You'll be pleased when you see how much you save.
Do all your chores and all your homework. If you have an important test coming soon this may be your opportunity to show them you're responsible!
If you have siblings get along with them and maybe they might help convince your parents.
Tell your parents to take you to the pet shop to "look around." Seeing how cute the animal is might help them agree.
Don't beg; this will make your parents mad, the opposite of what you want.
