How would you handle if your son or daughter was best friends with your enemies child? Obviously you wouldnt keep your kid from being friends with them. But what if down the line a sleepover or party or they wanted to hang out after school? How do you handle this?

Enemies!?  Are you in junior high!?  I'm sorry, but that just sounds so immature.  To answer your question, you act like an adult and do what's best for your child, which is encouraging the friendship and allowing them to hang out.

i would think by this time in life everyone could be a grown up about things and what ever the issues were as younger ppl it would be all water under the bridge sorta speak.. setting an example for the kids to me would be more important..

As long as I felt that our dislike of each other isn't affecting how my child is treated in her home I would have no problem with it. My daughter has a friend whose mother and I have had a couple issues. Nothing big, we just don't speak often and probably disagree a lot when it comes to parenting, but I know that the family loves my daughter and the friend and her get along very well. I'm not going to deny her that friend, just because her mom and I don't see eye to eye on everything.

I don't really have enemies, so I am not sure how to answer the question. I don't keep my son from any of his friends no matter what I think of the parents. As long as they are nice to my child I don't care what they think of me.

We have a few. Sadly. And not our doing. But the kids are still friends.
