She says I can stay with her and she would pick me up from the airport. However my mom has never met this girl and says that the worst will happen. I have FaceTimed with my friend every day and know everything about her. I know where my moms coming with but I also feel like this will be a great learning experience and that she’s too paranoid. Any tips to help me convince her to let me go?
