My daughter has been invited to spend the night at 2 different friends' houses...she's only 6...and she's only stayed over nite alone at my mom&dad's house...and we've stayed at her god parents' home 4 times...
so how young is too young to have sleep overs at a friend's house? and what signs should i look for when they invite her to spend the nite?

I also have a 6 year old daughter. I first let her spend the night at a friends house when she was 5 years old. It was one of her best friends. I have been close with her friend's family for a long time. If it was just a casual friend, then I would have never let her do it. She has probably had about 7 sleepovers so far, and they have all worked out fine.
