Your parents are, I know it's hard to believe when you are a teen, most likely competent guardians, and they are only acting in your best interest. If you did keep tabs on the sport, study up, browse around for the next few years, by the time you are 18 you'll be in an extremely good position to start playing. You'll be lightyears ahead of most new players, and most likely youll have some money saved up so you can get everything you need to play - got the $800-$1200 it'll take to get started?
All good things in time
