And that's all I have to say about that.
My personal recommendation though, it to just keep asking your parents about it. Really, that's just the easiest and safest way for something like this.

If they are afraid, its easier to get them to lose most of their fear, but if they are just disgusted of them then itll be a pain in the butt since they're is no reason for it that you can counter with facts and logic.. And tbh... A giant spider as most people see tarantulas, isnt something that you just WANT in your house 99.999% of the time
Whatever you decide to do, Heli, be considerate of your parent(s); try to understand where they are coming from. Think about the reaction they could have if you do decide to keep it behind their back, and even the consequences; do you have a good relationship with your mom? Keeping something like this from a parent will often times make them become more suspicious of your actions once found out, despite your intentions. Remember that your parents provide for you and keep a roof over your head, so be respectful of their decisions; unless you have a job, they are the ones who will ultimately be paying for this pet.
Edit: I like doomsdays post below mine. I wasn't allowed to keep a spider until I could pay for it so I would play with the spiders around the house and put them all in my room. I'd tell my mom not to sweep the webs in the corners of my bedroom.. haha.

My idea would be to catch a couple jumping spiders (granted nobody you know including urself -.- and pareents) are allergic, and introduce them to those.. They are extremely intelligent and interesting, and got me over myhatred for spiders.. I find them very fascinating now and wouldnt completely trash the idea of having more arachids as pets (i ahd a scorp a few years back), and im the kind of kid who wouldve laughed if someone told me they had a pet t
Can't agree with you, Natalie. Mom's house, Mom's rules. Don't like it ... wait until you move out to do what you want.
