1Hey Coach,
I want to build a ramp for my scooter on my front porch but my parents don't want me to. What should I do?

Hey Cameron93

Unfortunately, you're not the first kid whose parents aren't super excited about the idea of having a ramp or halfpipe built in their backyard or off their front porch. But don't worry - I've got a few ideas which may help you get that ramp built sooner than you think:
  • Find some new parents - ones that are super cool and let you watch as much TV, eat as much sugar and build as many ramps on the front porch as you want. You don't live in Iraq - so tell your parents to either shape up and let you build a ramp, or you'll be heading down to the parent store and using your allowance to buy a newer, much cooler set of parents.
  • Find out why your parents aren't keen on the idea of having a ramp off the front porch. Are they afraid you'll hurt yourself? If that's the case, get a helmet and some pads and see if your parents will help you build the ramp so it's safe. The front porch isn't exactly the most convenient place to put a ramp for your scooter. Ask your parents if you can build one in your back yard or somewhere else around the house that isn't in such a high-traffic area.
  • Ride your scooter through your living room and kitchen, while singing Outkast, until your parents are on the verge of a mental breakdown. That may get you grounded for a couple of weeks - but it could be enough for them to allow you to build a scooter ramp. It might be worth the gamble.
  • See if there's a ramp somewhere else near your home, like at a friend's house, a school or a skatepark. That's not as convenient as having one on your front porch but it's still a nice alternative.
