about sleepover

HI~

My question is, how can you explain to a 6 years old DD how it's wrong to sleep over at a guy friend house?  

She asked if she could have a sleepover and i told her it not going to happen and it wrong for to have sleepover with a guy. I just don't see it is appropriate.  We have morals and standards. This guy is not related to her at any way.  He is just a good friend from Kindergarten.  

I think it cute that she want to do the sleepover but at the same time not appropriate.


UPDATE:  I'm not bashing anyone at all I'm just asking if it is 'normal' to have co-ed sleepover.  I know nothing would happen, it just I never had co-ed sleepover or anyone sleepover at my house.  I was told when I was growing up, if you can't sleep over at a guy house when you're 17 you're sure not sleeping over at a guy house at 7.  I only asked because it's a different century now, and i was wondering if it very common and whatnot.  There's is no thought of something sexual going to happen at all. It more of if she thinks it okay now would it be okay later in high school.

No help here, I had a great guy friend when I was in 2nd-5th grade and we often had sleepovers.....shame on my parents I guess, but I turned out just fine.

 At age 6 it is appropriate. they are little children. There is nothing sexual going on.

I have to agree...if they were 9, I'd have issues, but at 6, I don't see a problem.

I would let her have the sleepover.  Not like they are going to make out or anything. As long as the parents are there to supervise, i see no issue.  I think 6 is too young to push the co-ed ban on sleepovers.  Shoot i had sleepovers my whole life with the opposite gender and nothing happened.

 I would just tell her it is not appropriate. We do not allow opposite sex sleepovers. No, I do not think anything sexual would happen(DD has no clue about any of that anyway, she's 7). however, it is not a habit we wnat to start. If we would not allow it at 16, we will not allow it at 7.

no not saying it bad I just want to understand and explain to her how we just think it wrong... if your parents didn't think there were anything wrong with it than there's nothing wrong with it.
