I want to start investing, but my parents are against it. What to do?

At 18 you can do whatever you want, regardless of what your parents want, so just wait another year =)
I suspect that your parents just don't have much confidence in such schemes, because a lot of people lost their savings in the late nineties. Might be worth talking to them, find out the reasons and reassure them.
But overall, your desire is very commendable and you are absolutely right to secure your future right now.
