I recently started getting into lasers. I've watched tons and read tons about how they work, how to build them, etc. Obviously I wanted to get my own. I'm only twelve though so everything has to run through my parents. It took tons of begging for them to allow me to even get a 5mW green laser. I really want a burning laser but my parents say no. Not because of not trusting me (I have knives, fire, etc. and am very trsutworthy) but more worried about an accident or one of my friends getting ahold of it. I also plan on building the laser (200mW Red) with my own money that I earned (not that my parents just give me). How can I convince them to let me buy one? Also, please don't be telling me about how I don't need a laser at this age. I understand all the safety issues and plan to get laser goggles if I am allowed to get the laser. Thanks.
