How do you feel about sleepovers that aren't at your house?

Blue's post about saying no made me think of this.

How do you feel about & handle sleepover requests from other people? I'm comfortable with my girls going to my parents' house or my mother in laws. I haven't let them stay elsewhere though.

Last year my oldest daughter (then 11) was asked to stay at a friend's house. I love the mom but went to high school with her husband. I didn't care for him then or now. I let her go until midnight but then picked her up & said it was so she could see dh since he'd been out of town all week for work.

Last summer a girl from class who always talked about the many boyfriends her mom had & how they made crude remarks to her asked. I'll bet you'll be surprised to hear I said 'No Thanks!'


We're slowly starting to make hs friends locally, so I'd appreciate hearing what you ladies think about sleepovers.

    That's a sweet way to remember things.  I did have much better times staying with just one or two girlfriends at a time versus the slumber party action.  

    Quoting celticdragon77:

    I allow my kids. 

    I have fond memories of staying up late watching forbidden movies and the laughing and silliness and having deep conversations...
