Are you responsible? I mean, you say the words, but your words don't match your actions ... You're purposely coming home late just to irritate them! How is that showing them that you're responsible?!
Actions speak louder than words. Start showing them that you respect them and their rules, and maybe they'll be willing to negotiate a curfew.
I second Smurf. If you think you're as mature and responsible as you say you are, then you'll obey your folks' rules. When they see you can behave yourself, they'll ease up and give oyu more priveleges.
Ask yourself this, what would you do with your time out of the house?
I agree with Gummy and Smurf, you're purposely breaking the rules just to anger your parents... why would they give you more freedom if you are trying to make them angry, that's just gonna make them want to punish you and give you less freedom, which seems to be working.
So stick to your curfew and follow rules, and I almost guarantee you'll be granted more freedom.
