  • My dd sleeps over at my aunt's house all the time and she is a lesbian. As long as I know the family, I don't mind.

  • Absolutely. We are very open with our children about same sex couples and have very close friends, who are also neighbors who are a same sex couple. My kids spend time with them, letting those children spend time with them is not going to make them gay... and most people who are same sex couples don't love all over each other in front of people (at least none of those that I know) I don't think there should be an emphasis placed on it being right or wrong - I let my children choose what they feel is right or wrong and then they learn from their mistakes, but I am not going to tell them that they cannot talk to someone who is in a same sex relationship - That to me is like telling them that they can't place with a kid because they have red hair.

  • I think you should be putting more emphasis on if they are good people, are they going to have the same rules for your daughter at their house and respect your rules when your daughter is there? Not fight in front of her, not watch unappropriate stuff in front of her, feed her, provide fun things to do while she is ther. Who cares about the same sex thing as lng as the other rules are respected?

  • as long as they aren't having an orgy in front of the kids. but i'd expect the same from a hetero couple.

  • I would allow my child to stay over night as long as I trusted that they were appropriate people to supervise my child no matter what their sexual preference.
