My 6 year old thinks he wants to have a sleep over at a friend's house. I'm not good with that. Just because I don't know the child's parents very well and I know my son well enough that he'll be calling when night hits for me to come get him. They seem like good people, but aren't we all? And my child has NEVER slept any where that this father and I weren't. He's 6! I personally think he's too young, but just wanted some other opinions. Now, if the other child wants to stay at our house, that's fine. The other child will be 8 in August and has slept away from home before. We live about 9 houses away from each other.
