I take stuff apart in the pursuit of learning. I recommend trying it on something old and not being used though. I started taking apart old IBM PSU PS/2's that my dad brought home.
I wouldn't go against your parents wishes though; My dad once locked me out of windows, I reformatted the computer ; he started using the keylock (old case) I unplugged it. I spent months grounded from going near a PC.
These are extreme circumstances though. If you can convince him to let you disconnected the four screws in the case that keeps it in place, you should be able to see more of the labels. This is the least intrusive approach.
