Children and Sleep-overs Do you allow your children to sleep over at a friend's home? If so, what are the guide-lines? For instance, are they allowed to come home in the middle of the night or would you allow your daughter to spend the night at a friend's home who has an older brother? It seems like times have really changed and I just wanted to get some other opinions on whether the sleep-over is really a good idea anymore. If not, how do you explain to your children that this is not allowed?
