Walk through your exit route during the day to familiarize yourself with any potential noises. Fix squeaks and creaks if possible.
Dress in your pajamas, and say goodnight to your parents as you pretend to go to bed.
Wait until parents are sleeping
Wait until you are positive your parents are sleeping. Listen for loud, deep breathing and snoring.
Tiptoe through the house to get to the door. If your room is on the first floor, climb out of a window.
Unlock the door
Quietly unlock the door and gently close it behind you.
Leave the door unlocked
Be sure to leave the door unlocked so you don't have to worry about jangling keys when you get back.
