EDIT: But you can use offline mode.
EDIT: For some things, and sometimes it doesn't work.

1. Tick the "remember password" checkbox in the login box
2. From the menu, choose "Steam" then "Go Offline" and click "Restart in Offline Mode"
3. Now you can run Oblivion without being logged into your parents' account, but Steam is still running (that shouldn't be a problem though)

My YouTube channel, my first let's play (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) is up and running!

However, if you did, the only way you start it without Steam MIGHT be to start the .exe directly - no garatunee and never working with Steamworks-games (but as mentioned, Oblivion ain't one. Skyrim, however, is.)
Alternative is the already mentioned Offline-Mode.
1 - always login automaticly (means turn on that feature)
2 - Start the game once. You don't need to play it.
3 - Click on "Steam -> Go Offline" and start Steam in Offline Mode
4 - Play
And if it's just the account you're worried about - why didn't you make a new one entirely? Would have been way easier.
