My 7 year old stepdaughter has not yet had a sleepover, and is wanting to. I know when I was little, the kids across the street and I were having sleepovers at each others' houses when we were 4 or 5 even, but our parents were good friends and we lived so close... Anyway we haven't let SD yet because she was having some behavioral issues when she'd go to others' houses or if she had friends over to play, like the rules didn't apply if there were friends involved. She has matured a lot in the past year. I know some of her classmates do and some don't yet, and I think it depends on the kid and her maturity level too. Thoughts?
Also, when I asked her last week if she'd like to invite a friend for a sleepover, she asked, "Can it be a boy?" I said no, for a sleepover it has to be a girl. I know some people do co-ed sleepovers with little ones, but it makes me uncomfortable. Am I off base?
