Am I a BAD Mom for thinking that my son who's nearly five years old is too young for a sleep over at his friend's house?  I don't think I had my first sleep over until I was school age, not pre-school age...  Maybe I am too protective?  I just don't think it's a good idea yet.

I am the same exact way! My daughter is 6 and wants to have a sleepover but I am just not comfortable with that idea yet. You are not a bad mom and not over protective by any means.

Thank you for responding, I feel so much better about sticking to my belief.  Now I just have to respond to the Mom who invited my son that he's not ready to sleep over.  It is so nice that she offered, but I don't wan't to offend her...

I agree.... I have a 6 year old son and won't let him have sleep overs yet either I'm just not ready for that to start yet.

Im sure she will understand. Some parents are more comfortable with taking that step, I dont think I will ever be ready! lol
