Would you let your DD play or stay at her friends house if the parent was a Single Father? a Single Mother?

and assuming you don't know the Single Parent. Why yes or no.

Moms aren't just automatically more trustworthy, there's some kooks with boobs just as easily as there's male wierdos out there

  • I wouldn't let my children stay at anybody's house that I did not know personally, respect, and trust. Single mother/father is irrelevant in my opinion.

  • I don't allow my child to play at anyones house i don't know. It doesn't matter if they are single or married.

  • I wouldn't let my kids play with anyone that I haven't met, but I don't care if the parent is single dad. I'm a single mom myself - maybe the dad is cute :)

  • Well it's just ignorant to single someone out as a person based on their marital status. Sorry you don't like it. Seems like you have negative ideas of single parents.

  • I would go over and meet the parent first just the same as I would if it were a married couple

  • Um, if I don't know them, my kid isn't going there anyways. My kids have had friends of single mothers but, they couldn't go over there because the SM didn't like my kids questioning why the father was there. I tried to explain but, kids ask questions over and over and the SM didn't like it. I haven't come across single Dad's yet but, it wouldn't matter to me, I background check everyone. :) If I didn't allow my child to go to homes of single parents then they would never go anywhere, my children are the only children we know that come from an intact family.

  • As long as I know them and like them and think they are safe, then yes.

  • honestly, I wouldn't let my child stay at anyones house, but I do think that I would be a little more susceptible to letting her go over to a friends house with a single mom more so then with a single dad, maybe it's sexist but I'd trust the mom more then the dad, even though both genders can be creeps I'd def make sure that I meet with the mother/father and make sure I feel comfortable with my child being over and obviously watch how the mother/father parents.

  • Being how some moms get the kids cause she is mom, not saying all but some kids would be better off with their father.

  • oh I wanted to add if I don't know the parent/s then my child is not going over to play. I also don't let random kids into my home. I have had one little girl come over to play and she is also asking to come inside to play. I keep telling her not until I have met your mom and then I asked the girl where she lives she said she didn't know I asked her how old she is she didn't know, what grade is she in she said kindergarten I could not get her to tell me if she was in k last year or is going into it this year school starts tomorrow here.
