I would let him stay. That little girl is his relative & she needs to get used to him. You should go over there with your son & play with the little girl & ask her if she can be a big girl & help take care of him. I understand your worry, but i would still let him go over there. I would also talk to grandma & sincerely tell her about how you feel. Tell her you are scared he will end up in the ER with the little girl around. Just talk to her about it. Let her know how you feel in a friendly manner.
Obviously, the little girl is jealous of him.

Don't worry about hurting any feelings. It is your child and you are the best judge of a situation. I would not let my DS sleep over with the other children until he is older. Three children at one time for anyone who is not accustomed to it is too much work, especially at those ages. Maybe Grandma thinks it's too much of a responsibility too but doesn't want to leave your DS out so you won't be insulted. I would say that you think right now it's too overwhelming for him with the other two children. What if the other little girl really hurt him or just opened the front door and he walked out while Grandma was making a snack or Dinner? I am a safety freak so I would not even have a second thought about him not going. Your SO should understand too since it is his Son too. You should tell his Mom this way she knows exactly how you feel. She was a Mom too so she should understand.
