Do you like to have kids stay the night at your house?

I hate when one of my kids asks if their friend can stay the night. Absolutly loathe it. Anyone else? Am I the only weirdo who hates having other kids over?

  • Our kids had friends over a lot when they were middle school age and older. The big deal was having home made pancakes in the morning. Fun............

  • Well, I have three kids right now at the age where they have sleepovers and yes I like having sleepovers. I am very picky about who they invite and they are each only alowed one person at a time. My kids have some really good, well behaved friends so it's not usually an issue. They also go to others for sleepovers so I feel that we pay for their child and then they return the favor and feed our child and what not. We follow the same rule for driving , I drive one way, another parent drives the other. Even steven.

  • I hate it and only allow it once in a great while. Our home is small and the noise they make keeps everyone else up.

  • I don't mind the kids my children hang out with. They are all nice and respectful. It is more about me. I just hate having people stay the night. I hate having to watch myself with other children around. Also the entertaining them factor. I hate feeling like I have to keep them fed and happy. Like hosting a party all night. Its annoying to me. I like my nights to be "off duty."
    Thanks for the responses.
