have friends over for the night?

Do you let each kid have a friend over on the same night or just one at a time?

Not often. They just dont ask. But if they do ask, most of the time I let them.

just depends how it works out, but it goes in spurts, we don't really have rules about it. I don't mind if there's 2 kids over for sleepovers, but often we work out a trade.

We don't really do it yet.
My oldest is 9 and my dh is just not ready to let her off to sleepovers. She has gone to two, one for a birthday of a dd of a good friend of mine and one with a neighbor that we do switch sleepovers with.

I'm sure over the next couple years they're going to start popping up.

Because of how small our home is, we don't do sleep overs here and most parents understand that.

My oldest (he's 15) stays at a friends house once in awhile. He only lives 3 houses down and over the 4 years we've lived here, they've become practically inseparable. My 9 year old stayed one night at a friends house, but he really doesn't like to go far from home. He'll stay with friends of ours that have 3 boys, 2 right around his age, but they are more like family then our family is lol My 8 year old has a friend that lives about 9 houses the other way from us, so about once every 3 months they get together for a slumber party.

I think once we move and we have much more space for the kids to move around, sleepovers at our house won't be an issue. I really don't mind letting the kiddos have friends over

too little for that yet, but I'm sure I'll have to set some ground rules, maybe one kid here per weekend?

Lucky mother to five!

Noah spends the night at friends houses all the time. He barely spends a weekend here! He has two friends that live very close, (one friend has divorced parents so sometimes he spends the night at the dads house too). Jayde and Sydney have done it a handful of times at the next door neighbor's house.

As for sleepovers here, I allow them occasionally. The girls have never had anyone sleep over, Noah has had Chase here, but Tony's a little weird and likes to be at his own house.

Every weekend I usually have at least one kid over here for a sleepover because of my older two. Some weekends we have several kids on Friday night and several different kids on Saturday night. For whatever reason everyone always comes here.

Sunday nights my cupboards are bare!
