Talk sense into my parents!!!

I would recommend that you take one or both of them to see your physician and have them explain it. Although you might want to get your physician's opinion first in case they say that you don't need it at your age! Your physician won't want to tell your parents what to do or not to do, but simply to educate them a little bit. You could also have them speak to a trainer at a gym, the health teacher at your school, the biology teacher at your school, etc.? They may never accept creatine, but a talk on protein, carbs, and fats should be easy enough to get through.
But yes, at the end of the day, you're going to have to accept their rules. That doesn't mean you can't get your protein from emptying their fridge***PES Representative***

In situations where I'm dealing with someone who is obviously ignorant about a particular subject, I like to ask them for definitions and what they think is occurring in the subject at hand.
So in this case, ask your parents what they think protein is, where it can be found, and why they think it's detrimental. Do the same for creatine. Once you understand what their reservations are on the subject, you can more pointedly debunk their preconceived notions and educate them. The important thing to remember, though, is that this needs to be done rationally, not emotionally. Don't argue, just go in well prepared to relate to them what the actual facts are. Also remember that it's not about proving them wrong, it's about sharing information that can be mutually beneficial.
But then they are your parents, so whether or not they choose to accept your research is anybody's guess. I use to prove my mom wrong and get grounded for it.

My Mom is Exactly like yours, btw. I finally sat her down and told that if she wanted to remain in my life, she needed to be able to admit when she was wrong. You can imagine how that went, I'm sure.

-That money can be saved for your higher education (if you qualify for it in later years)
-Medical Insurance in case you get injured
-Food , which is the only supplement a teenager with a big ego needs.
-Auto insurance in case you fall in the teenage statistics for drivers of your age
-Your other bills they have to pay for you living at their house , like your cellphone, light and water consumption that increases their bills.
See how wasting money on Protein Powder can be bad for your life? You should eat protein anyway, not drink it, it is richer in micronutrient content and a proper diet will never be trumped by wallet-leaning supplements anyway.
And a word on Creatine, though it is useful as it is, all the creatine your teenage body needs should come from red meats...so eat your steak, listen to your parents and humble up...their house, their rules. Supplement-wise and science-wise you don't need either in your diet or training schedule.

But yeah, I argue with my mother all the time because she insists she is never wrong...and will tell you to your face. So when I prove her wrong in front of other family members, she still refuses to admit it. everything is my fault or someone elses fault...the woman has never made a wrong move in her life. I gave up a long time ago trying to "fix" that

Thanks for the help guys! I can still take the protein, but the creatine is still off limits for now.

-You don't need it
-Eat more red meat as it contains Creatine if you so much crave it
Did you not understand about creatine bro? Don't worry about supps for now, I can assure you your maxes, and gains have NOT been because of creatine or protein powders...
