I'm on lunch break, so I need to type fast!
My 7th graders were just telling me all about this past weekend's sleepover party at a friend's house. A co-ed sleepover party! A few of the girls said there were about a dozen girls and 5 boys. Some kids crashed outside on the deck, some slept on the living room couches, and supposedly, some boy/girl couples snuck off to the kid's bedroom! I asked where the parents were and the girls said they were in their bedroom and came out every few hours to check on them! 7th grade in America is 12-13 years old! What the hell is going on besides poor parenting? According to my female students, some of the boys usually have a curfew of around midnight, but they have been to a lot of co-ed sleepovers.
