How can you convince your parents to let some of your guy friends hang out at your house?
(Sorry this is really long)
My parents like to plan things WAY out in advance, so i'm asking over a month early. Every year since I was somewhere in the age range of 3-5, we've had a huge celebration on July 4th, we have a LOT of land. My dad's friends have some sons that come over every year and we always hang out. I'm allowed to invite people over but my parents act like I'll never hang out with guys, but I just wanted to invite them over this time. There will be girls there too, and an adult is always somewhere outside or in the house, plus I wouldn't want to do anything inappropriate with them anyways. It's not like we haven't hung out before, we've gone to the movies together and our schools home games and stuff. My mom knows all their parents, since I've known 2 of them since Pre-school and the other one since Kindergarten, plus she works with one of their dads and hangs out with his mom, and used to be around another one's parents all the time since he has a sister who I am best friends with and used to be in Boy Scouts, which my brother was in. Any advice?
