    Their house, their rules. Trying to circumvent their rules is not a way to gain trust and increased privileges. You are just proving why they should not trust you.
    BTW, I do not believe you want to bypass the time limit for JUST homework.

    Nope. Could be any of a number of things I can think of, plus any he thinks are inappropriate that I may not.

    It sounds like you are both making assumptions about what the other has, and/or will, do. Hard though it may seem I'd suggest talking to both your parents together to try and get to the bottom of their concerns and address them (perhaps by offering to do your homework in a communal area). After that then, yes, their house (their laptop/modem/internet connection), their rules.

    I didn't write this post to have people tell me not to break rules. I hate to tell you this but my dad is probably the most closed minded, stubborn person you will ever meet. I'm not even a big pc gamer, sure I play a little NHL and Skate on Xbox but I would just use my other computer for playing games. I know I sound like a 5 year old when I say this, but it's not fair for him to allow me two hours and expect it to last a whole school day. My school is way into tech and they require you to have both a tablet and a laptop (ridiculous, I know), and you simply can't do work on paper (except for math). My point is, if I don't have more time, I'm going to end up with assignments due that are on my computer that I cannot access.

    I'm doing this for white hat purposes.

    If you have both a tablet and a computer, can you not rely on your tablet for most things? I know, I know. It's a waste of a macbook But it may be the path of least resistance.

    Sounds like you could get the support of the school, why not try that?

    Rather that come here (or anywhere) looking for a way to bypass the controls that you parents feel are warranted, why not sit down with them and try an adult conversation about the issue? Leave the entitlement and emotion out of the discussion and just approach it from a logical point of view. Perhaps if you can show them that you can have a reasonable and unemotional discussion on the subject, they will be more willing to consider your point of view and loosen the controls a bit.

    Or you can throw a hissy fit, stomp your tiny little feet and prove to them that their locking down your system was warranted.

    Forum moderators might have a problem if one of us were to tell you a way to get around parental controls or system security.

    I don't understand some people that want to post such personal rants to strangers on any forum thinking that we are going to hold their hand, and give them advise that they want to hear defending their position.

    Why would you want to do that anyway?

    You think justifies telling others how to get around the system security.

    Well, as Lawrence Lessig once said, "code is law." Once code is used to enforce and regulate social mores, it becomes a quite legitimate target of attack.
