My 7 year old is on night 2 of a sleep over. He and his best friend are having a lot of fun and begged for him to spend one more night, so they could go to school together. Best friend's parents agreed, and since the boys are in the same class, I didn't see any problems with it. They have the same bedtime there that we do here, and sleepovers rarely happen for these 2. What do you say to sleep overs on school nights? What do you say to more than 1 night sleepovers?Answer Question

As long as the other parents are in agreement about enforcing bedtimes, I don't see anything wrong with sleeping over on a school night or more than one night in a row. I do think family time is important so it wouldn't be an all-the-time thing for me anyway (and I know it isn't for you). If my child was tired at school or had subjects that were suffering, those sleepover privileges would get taken away for sure though.

I see nothing wrong with sleepovers as long as you know the friend and parents. I would allow a sleep over on a school night on an occasion like his friends birthday weekend. Remind your son that it was an exception you allowed him to sleep over on a school night.
