Our neighbors have children the same age as ours. Their daughter is 8 and their son is 6 (my sons are 8 and 6). They are very good friends, however I am concerned about a number of things. Their daughter brags about kissing older boys, but calls my son her boyfriend and they swear they are going to get married when they grow up. Their son likewise calls my other son his boyfriend... I know that children will be children, and we have had many discussions on appropriate behavior, and God's will for relationships. However, the other kids aren't Christians. Their mom believes in a Native American religion (worships and respects all life as spirit?) She doesn't approve of some of the things that her kids have talked my children into doing, but we are always the ones to catch them. Anyway my question is that we have invited them over in the past to watch a movie or play outside and their daughter and my son always try to sneak off to be alone together. (I have heard her trying to lure him away, but in no way saying he is innocent). They have recently invited them to their house, and I don't know what to say (I said not right now...) I know I can't shelter my children forever, but I don't want to put them in the situation to sin. Does that make since? What would you do?
