    I put I would think about it. Just because it would depend on how tolerant the other family is. If they were the type to preach to my child and tell them Mommy is going to Hell then NO but if they were nice and tolerant then I would have no problem with it.

    I'm the overprotective mom who wouldn't let her kid spend the night at anybody's house, regardless of religion.

    As long as they aren't pushing their religion on her ... sure why not? I'm Pagan and my dd is Christian and I don't push my beliefs on her. She goes to church every Sunday. So I guess she already does stay the night with someone of a different religion! hehe

    We're atheist and my daughter's best friend is Catholic. She spends weeks at a time at her friend's house in the summer. They are like sisters. But I've known the family most of my life and trust them. They also don't push their religion on people so it has never been an issue. they have taken her to church once but that doesn't matter because my daughter goes to a Catholic school so she goes to Mass every week anyway.

    Wha? I don't even get why this would be a question, unless the issue is that the other family would be PUSHING their religion on your child.
    As a Pagan, I spent time at Christian friends' houses, and when they'd pray before dinner, we'd close our eyes and be quiet too, but they never asked us to pray. We were being respectful.

    RanaAurora, there are families out there that think other religions are evil and will not allow their kids to stay with other kids. As a Pagan, my children have run into this several times in the past. That is why I asked the question... It isnt about my daughter going to their home, it is about them entering mine. Her friends can not come over and stay the night because of my religion...

    If the child is my child's friend and the parent's are responsible adults and they are nice people and I feel my child is safe in their home I could care less if they pray to Papa Smurf.
