Eventually she'll listen to a doc and then faithfully do any and all therapy to somewhat an extreme so that she can get back out there as soon and hard as possible.
Hahaha... my dad had a similar method. If I came running/crying he said "oh? You've got a little cut at the thumb...? Lets cut off the entire thumb so you wont feel the little scratch anymore"

baby steps my friend, not sure how long you've riding, but most of the injuries I see are newbie playing one too many video games or watching the X-games and trying those trick far to soon. I've been riding for 27 years, 4 years competitively and have only had one injury in that time. Just slow down a little, constraint on being smooth and not just landing, but stomping your landings.

Says the guy who's been nursing a phantom back injury for the better part of a month.... ahh well do as I say not as I do.
gotta be careful with that. i bruised my tailbone a couple of months back, and that ended up after a month or so morphing into a bout of acute sciatica that kept me out of work for 2 weeks and, at this stage in the game, has pretty much put an end to my first season of snowboarding.

to the OP, with injuries like concussions and back injuries, as many have already pointed out, they can build into something much worse, so just take care.

you could always do what a majority of teenagers do and just lie to them..LOL.."hey mom, going to hang out at X's house..see ya later!"

In reality, your best bet is to calmly sit down with them and explain that you'll go easy, that you'll stay out of the park for the rest of the season (which you may or may not do) and that you understand their concern and thank them for it, but this is something you're passionate about and feel really strongly about.

Everyone is just gonna side with the parents because they're older. Just tell them you'll try base jumping and maybe they'll let you continue snowboarding.
