  • Youre never too old for a sleep over. Shoot me and my friends go away on weekends together and share hotel rooms. We call them our slumber parties without kids.

  • Same sex - no age limit. I got together for a weekend in October with some old friends....an extended sleepover so to speak and I'm way older than teen.

    Co-ed - if you don't want that under your roof, then don't allow it.

  • if it is the same sex then I would say there is never an age that is to old. If you are talking about oppisite sex then I would say 12 years old or there abouts. I have a friend who has 3 children the same age as mine, she has 3 girls and I have 2 boys and 1 girl. We have done sleepovers in the past with all 3 children. We finally stopped it about 2 years ago when the 2 oldest were turing 12.

    If for some reason she needed the help or I needed it I know we would still allow it because the kids are close and I don't think they really think of each other in any way other then friendship. I think when my kids get older it will depend on the relationship they are in. My parents didn't let us have boyfriends sleep over until we were out of high school and in serious relationships.

    I guess you have to do what is most comfortable for you. Good Luck!
