Well, I must say that your folks certainly chose a creative way to punish you. I've heard of kids being home schooled because they were being bullied, or because their parents wanted to protect them from perceived abuse, but I've never before heard of anybody home schooling their kids because the kids were dumb enough to have pre-marital sex. I'm glad for their sake as well as yours that they put their foot down, however. Because having sex is THE LAST THING you should be doing, young lady. Consider yourself lucky that you didn't get pregnant from it, or get a sexually transmitted disease which could either leave you permanently sterile or even KILL YOU. And yes, there are STD's which are FATAL. AIDS is perhaps the best known, but there are others which are just as bad. You're just really lucky that your folks caught you before this went too far. One day, when you're older and more mature, you'll thank your parents for doing this. Because as bad as you think this is right now, it could have been FAR WORSE.
As for regaining your parents' trust, I wouldn't count on being able to do this for a long, long time, if I were you. You've already shown them that you're too immature to be trusted around boys. And at 14, you're WAY TOO YOUNG to be dating anybody. You aren't even old enough yet to get a learner's permit, much less a driver's license, which means that you're totally dependent on either your parents or whoever it is that you're dating for transportation. That puts you in a risky position just by itself, because it means that whoever controls the car keys also controls YOU and what you can and can't do. Do you even realize that there have been lots and lots of cases out there in which girls your age were raped and even murdered because they were foolish enough to believe what they read on the internet or saw on TV? Your parents obviously don't want you to become a statistic, or to join the ranks of these unfortunate girls, so they've made the decision to take you out of school and home school you from now on. And you need to learn to live with that, because it's being done to keep you safe. I wouldn't count on doing a lot of stuff with friends this summer, either. Because one advantage to home schooling is that it is and can be a YEAR ROUND EVENT. You may not even GET a vacation this summer, so wasting your time and energy trying to plan one now is a mistake.
