I really hate to say it but the reality of your situation is that if you are at home and living under your parents roof you are subject to obeying their rules. They really dont have to give you a reason because their yes's and no's should should not be questioned with an argument or a debate. But at the same time im wondering why a parent would tell a 16 year old not to work if he or she wanted to work.

Get a commercial edger than you're good to go.

just learn to use the trimmer to edge w/. a drive can be edged just as well w/ a trimmer if you have the patience and determination. why spend $300 right off the bat for an edger when the trimmer you have is adequate. yes, edgers are great and faster imo for the bigger companies, but just cutting a few in the neighborhood i think the trimmer should be fine. not trying to down you at all, i too started young, but that $300 on an edger is a lot for a start-up. dont waste time w/ the electric, learn how to edge w/ the trimmer.
