How often do friends come over?

How often does your child have a friend(s) that come over after school?

Would you allow a friend every day? Especially in the winter time when they don't play outside much?

1 mom liked this

they go to an afterschool program so pretty much never.  We usually have friends on the weekends after sports.  During softball season, I'm either a mom to 3 or a mom to 11.  haha

Afterschool, not too often. Sometimes he goes to a friend's house afternoon that lives near us. Most if his friends live a couple miles away, and so weekends are easier for parents' schedules.

 Usually at least once a week. Everyday is fine with me, it keeps them occupied and active!

 About once a week my daughter's BFF who lives on our street comes over. Not every day, though- we (both families) have too much going on. My boys have friends over about once a month or so.

My children have never had friends come over.  We have an over-protective dog so strangers are not allowed on our property.

hardly ever.  We did have one friend stopping by nearly every day due to lack of supervision but she has since moved to a more reliable after school care.  Not many come by since we have a cat and do not want allergies of people to make them sick.

Once or twice a week. We are too busy with other extracurriculars and homework to have more than that. Everything has to be so scheduled nowadays with the parents so impromptu get-togethers don't happen easily as when I was a kid.

They play with their friends pretty much everyday, sometimes they come here, other times they go to their friend houses, sometimes they just play around our block. They play outside in the snow pretty much as they play outside in the summer.

Rarely. Though when we relocate back to Texas we will be right across the street from his best friend, and after being gone for two years I'm sure they will want to spend a lot of time together.
