  • I would actually want to personally know the parents before I take my kids over there. I would go there and sit down and meet them.

  • I see no reason for a sleep over.

  • Exactly. I would HAVE to know the family. I would want to meet everyone who will be in the house, each child and each child's family. If I didn't like one of the kids behaviors or their family just didn't feel right he wouldn't be going. But my son has just turned 8 and is a bit young to be over night I think.

  • depending on how old the child is but I probably wouldnt allow it. If I was thinking about it only if I knew the parents very very well and that for a long time.

  • Our kids don't do sleepovers, but if I were to allow it, I would have to know the parents personally. I would need to know what kind of pets they have (I don't trust dogs and my son is horribly allergic to cats) and also if they own a gun.

  • I talk to the parents on the phone to make arrangements. Though I don't always know the parents personally they are kids my son has gone to school with for the past 4 years.
