my 6 yr old twins have bugged me forever to have a sleep over at their friends house who is 3 houses up across the street from ours. My husband and i have to keep telling them no b/c their friends mothers boyfriend uses drugs. we have never flat out explained this to my daughers or their friend. i have put it nicely and told their friend that her moms boyfriend does a few things that my husband and i are not comfortable with. Then i come to find out their friend isnt very nice to them, she down right bullies them at times. I have told my daughters bc of that I dont like them playing with her, but still they persist in being this girls friend. I dont know i have always made it clear that they dont have to deal with their friend being mean they can always come home and choose not to play for the rest of the day.

Perhaps you can suggest a sleepover at your house?

Maybe letting the girls know that it would be a lot to pack for two girls. The pillows, the blankets, the pj's, the clothes, toothbrush, hairbrushes on and on....it is like packing for a mini-vacation.

Suggest to your girls that their friend is welcome to sleepover but, you simple do not want them to go over to their home.

This way the girls get to see their friend and you can monitor how the other girl is talking to your girls.

Just flat out tell them why. Because that friends mom has a boyfriend that uses drugs and drugs are bad. Drugs make people do bad things and you don't want them around that.

I would agree, have the "friend" sleep over your house instead.

I would suggest having her for a sleepover at your house. That should easily appease them.

Hmm, that's a weird situation. The BF uses drugs, the girl isn't nice to them, but they want to have a sleep over.

I agree either have it at your house or have them go somewhere else or have someone else.

It also doesn't hurt to tell the truth either. Ask them WHY they want to go to someone's house that isn't nice to them.

What do they really want, a sleep over, or a sleepover at this girl's? If they want the sleepover experience could they go to someone else?
