Close the cutain so he does not see you until you leave. This likely to get better as he matures, but in the meantime this is the best fix.

No curtains there to draw. thx tough. Even if there were curtains, I'm looking for a scent deterrent that will keep him away from anything like a door, window, birdfeeder, etc.
thx

Take a crate to your parents home and crate him until you have left and are out of site.

A "scent deterrent" isn't actually going to train him which is what you need to do. You need to teach him what is off limits, and what is expected of him. Deterring him with a smell isn't actually going to teach him anything. What happens when you're somewhere where there isn't some kind of deterrent and he hasn't been properly trained...you won't have control.

Why not puut something in front of the window to keep him away from it. Or better yet crate him as suggested.

If you're talking TEMPORARILY, you can barricade off a dangerous area or an area you don't want him to go in using a baby gate or x-pen--those can be used to keep a dog either IN or OUT of an area, so to speak.

+1 for ex pen to protect the window, and to barricade off any other hazards as well.

We kept one around all our electronics for over a year with Gracie, just to be sure she didn't get a hold of any of the cords.

It should be good to be Dog.
