During a sleepover, my DH stayed up with my DD and her friends chatting with them and kidding around well into the night. These girls are all about 14-15 and very cute and bubbly (you know how they are). At one point the girls had all fallen asleep except our DD's BFF, who wanted to talk about stuff that she didn't want to talk to her own parents about. So for awhile it was just the two of them talking.
DH came to bed later and said it was a nice chat and felt like he'd bonded with the girls.
Was this appropriate, or should my DH have gotten me to talk to her instead? Or not talked to her at all?

For your husband's protection it would have been good for you to be there. Girls that age can be fickle and it could quickly turn ugly for your husband - which would have a very negative effect for your daughter too. My hubby learned this the hard way. About 10 years ago we were youth leaders of a church and one of the girls had major family issues and really felt comfortable talking with hubby. We didn't think anything of if - until it was too late and she had started a bunch of nasty lies. It was a really bad situation, and later we learned she had said the same things about the pastor and the previous youth leader. It devastated my husband, but thankfully our kids were young enough to to realize what was going on. We left the church, but from what I heard the girl made similar statements about 7 other men in the church before anything was said to her family.
