To those of you old enough to have kids and those of you who do have kids, would it be acceptable for your son to sleepover at a girls house, or have your daughter stay the night at a boy's house? Assume your kids are between 13 and 16 and they'd be staying at the house of someone who is a similar age.

To those of you who aren't as old, do your parents care if you're spending the night at the house of someone who isn't the same gender you are?

To those of you who think sleepovers are stupid, you don't know what you're missing.

EDIT: If you're at some awkward middle age between the two ideas I suggested, choose whichever you feel applies more to you and roll with it.

I was never allowed to stay over girl/girlfriends places when I was 13-16 unless there were a bunch more people, and if they're staying over before 13 that it would all probably be innocent.

I'm 18 now and I don't think my parents really care anymore.

I don't think I can really put myself in the situation, but my first impulse is to say no.

But then again, what could kids do at a sleepover that they couldn't do alone during the day?

Well, let me tell you this TS, I wasn't allowed to sleep over at my girlfriend's house when we were 14, but we were still having sex.

If they want to do it, they're going to do it, and they don't need a sleep over situation to do it. There's no preventing your child from having sex when they're ready for it. I also don't think it's very healthy.

So, you could let them spend the night, hopefully they have safe sex with a condom in a comfortable bed with blankets in pillows. Or you could say no and they might go have sex in a public park behind some bushes, maybe without a condom since there's no nightstand there. Or maybe they wont have sex at all because they're not ready and thus there's no point in worrying about a sleepover.

If anything when it comes to sleepovers I'd be more worried about alcohol or drug consumption. And they can do that even at sleepovers without members of the opposite sex.
Listen. I'm sorry.

Sleepovers are lame

Why would I go to another person's house to do what I can do at my own house

And it's probably more comfortable to do it at my own house too

In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with a boy or girl, who happens to be good friends with someone of the opposite gender, wanting to spend time with them, and so I think I would let my kid sleep over as long as they promise to not get knocked up (maybe my opinion will change when I do finally have kids of my own, who knows).

That won't be for years to come though, so for now, I'm going to say that I should be allowed to stay with my friends without everyone's parents thinking the first thing we do when alone is have lots of unprotected sex.

I'm 16 but last year I slept in the same bed with a girl the same age, it was 6 in the morning and her mum wasn't gonna make me go all the way home after I walked her home from a house party in the rain, the mate was a lesbian anyway so it's not like anything was gonna happen
#14
When I was a teenager, I was super honest with my parents about that kind of stuff. There was a few times where I was totally like "hey mom, can I stay the night over at this house with nobody but these two girls and I?" I think it was a combination of trust and not really giving a crap that led to her saying yes.

I don't think I'd mind my kids having sleepovers with other kids of a different gender as long as I'd met the kids before. I'd try to teach my kids about being responsible and not getting pregnant or getting other people pregnant for whenever they do inevitably have sex. Though I'm not a parent so my opinion doesn't have much bearing.

Basically, if they want to do it, they're going to anyway.

If no one's getting boned, what's the point?
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

To those of you saying you would not allow someone to sleepover, is it because you believe they will have sex, or something else?

@jjfeu662: maybe they just want to hang out and do shit at like 4am like Monopoly or Risk
#17
when i was 16/17 my gf would just come over on the weekend around 6 pm and we'd chill til my parents were sleeping then she just stayed the night. i dont know if it counts as a sleep over because we'd sleep in the same bed

Just last Friday I had the opportunity to stayover at a female friend's house, but I didn't, not because it'd be weird or anything, but because I didn't like the idea of staying over and invading the sanctity of somebody's home.

There ended up people of both genders staying over, but I guess we're talking about 1-on-1 situations.
#19
I would let my son do it, but I wouldn't let my daughter do it unless there was other people.

I've done it plenty of times though

That's not the correct way to proceed, you should have invaded your female friend's sanctity with your d.

Why does it feel like you're those dads who'd go, "Atta boy!" when his son wants to sleepover?
#22
my parents have always given me the independence such that i could manage to do anything even if they told me not to. they had no grounds to enforce the rules, they simply trusted that i'd be wise in deciding when to break them. i plan to do the same with my kids but i recognize that the effectness of that strategy may vary in whatever environment i raise them.
#23
My impulse now is to say 'Sure, why not? He/She's going to end up having sex eventually anyway', but I feel that as I'm not a parent my answer is probably not accurate.

nah, my parents never cared. Though it's not like I ever plan a "sleepover". I'd just show up somewhere and agree to crash there for the night (or weekend, or week).


Though for me & co. 'sleepovers' were always about what we're doing the next day.

Well I'm not old enough to have a teenager, but when I stayed at a 16 year old girls house, I was banging her.

Actually that'd likely be true today if I was 2-3 years younger.

If you don't care if he thinks you're a **** block and/or you care about him sleeping with her, than don't let him

If it was one on one, probably not. My parents let me stay over with girls but it was always a group.

This is one of those questis that I feel is really hard to accurately answer unless I'm actually a parent.



This. I want to say if I ever had kids I'd actually be a decent parent and not have them be cunts. And that I could legitimately trust them and know they wouldn't do anything and if they did they would tell me (I expect to be a more open parent that lets their kids invite their friends over and smoke/have a few beers and because of so they wouldn't feel like need to rebel behind my back and shit). But I really have no idea. And I would be the biggest hypocrite if I ever had a child so thankfully I'll never be in this situation.

If it was my son, then yeah do whatever. If it was my daughter, then it depends on the lad. I'd have to meet him.


My parents pretty much let me do what I want when I was a kid.

Do you think a daughter wouldn't instigate it?


My mom let my girlfriend stay a weekend recently but we're both over 18.

No, I'd just be more protective of a daughter I guess.

Fair enough. My friend had a daughter and suddenly he's turning into overprotective dad. It's funny to watch but a little weird at the same time.
