So before you judge, I'm 18 just still living at home. And my parents are super protective! I live in the safest neighbourhood in my city and police literally drive by every day. I live right by an elementary school and a park. There's even like a bunch of stores and a church right across from my house. All very safe. I have a good amount of friends and they're all great people. They don't do drugs or anything and I've known them a while. Particularly a guy I'm seeing I like to go to his house. And basically we just hang out and watch tv, go driving around listen to music get food etc and I've now got my escapes pretty down pat. My rooms in the basement and so I just crawl in and out of my window. Everyone else's room is upstairs. And they go to bed around 11 or 12 and that's when I go. And then I chill for a few hours then sneak back in. My biggest problem right now is that my window is very squeaky. It actually doesn't have a lock. It just slides open and shut. How do I get out quieter? And I can't go out the door Cus it beeps when it gets opened. Also, any other tips i should keep in mind for sneaking out? I think I've mastered it over the past few months but still

Hahaha! I love it!
For the squeaky windows, spray a little bit of WD-40 or put a drop of oil (pretty much any type would help... motor oil, maybe olive oil or vegetable oil even... Thicker is better, but again, anything will help, just might not last as long) on the hinges, wherever there is metal on metal movement. That should quiet things down quite a bit. Google "How to fix squeaky windows" and you'll probably find articles or how-to videos if you need help.
As for other tips, just think about possible things that could go wrong and have a plan ready to go just in case.
Teens/young adults like yourself have been sneaking out for a long time, you're not doing anything new :-)
Just be safe and have fun.0
