I have seen a thread on this but it was from 2012.


Do you allow your kids to have their friends sleepover?


We do and every time I do I ask myself "Why do I"! The kids stay up late, I typically feed them a ton of food and snacks and it just seems to be a pain in the rear!


My 2 girls each have a friend staying over tonight, which are also sisters. All the kids are good, but is it really necessary to do this and what is the obsession with sleep overs with kids?

We would have to know the parents really well to allow sleepovers at our house or theirs.

When my son was of "Sleepover" age(9-..), he would do 2 or 3 a month.
Both home and away.

I think it's one of those things parents do for the sake of their kids, knowing full well the kids will be miserable the next day. So yes, we allowed sleepovers, frequently. Still do, but now it's adult sons and girlfriends. They sleep better, and make their own breakfast.

Yep. When my kids were that age we frequently hosted sleepovers and they frequently slept over at friend's homes as well. As did I at that age. Lots of fun memories. Was it a pain (as an adult)? Sure. So are lots of things that provide good memories. I don't regret a minute.
