Male/Female Sleepover Opinions

Sammi - posted on 11/14/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm Sam and I'm a 15 year old girl and a sophomore in high school. I have a friend who is a guy. All we have between each other is friendship. He comes over every once in a while to hang out. I was going to ask to have him and two of my female friends come sleep over this weekend just for the heck of it. My mom is kinda half easy going and half protective. Should I bother asking? Would you let your daughter have a guy friend stay over?

It depends on your mother and father and what they think really. I would not allow that with friends from school. On the other hand, I have a friend who has two kids the same age as my youngest one and that is 16 and 15. Her youngest is a girl, but 9 times out of 10 he goes and stays over there at night its with her son. He and the girl have no interest in each other but as friends and he is holed up in her brother's bedroom playing games most of the night. But these kids have grown up knowing each other from birth pretty much. It was the same with their older brother and my daughter. WHen I was a kid, we had a friend stay over with us but his mother was also there. There was no going and staying all night with a guy in the house. The only other time I did stay with guys in the house was with a group I was part of at church and a club. I was the only teen girl and the guys were my cousins' best friends. So there was no nothing going on that way as the guys had already discussed the fact that they would not be dating cousins of their friends.

From the sounds of it, I think I would be fine. Especially if it's more than just him and you're not having a one-on-one sleepover. Generally speaking, it never hurts to ask. My daughter prefers boy-friends to girl-friends (she's only 5 at the moment though) so if she stays that way then it is likely that I would allow her to have a guy friend stay over as long as I was comfortable with him and the relationship between them and his parents were ok with it. As long as I was home too of course!
