No, boyfriends(or girlfriends, for that matter) are not petitionable, irrespective of whether or not you have parental consent. Under U.S. immigration law such individuals do not qualify as close relatives necessary for a family based petition.

You have to be 21 to petition. Parents' permit won't help.
