Re: When did/would you let your child go to a sleepover? (non-family)
In that situation, I wouldn't let my DD go. It definitely depends on who the parents are, and also on the child''s personality.
My older DD will be 5 next month, and she has never slept away from us (not even in another room let alone someone else's house). We live in a very small town, and since DH and I are the teachers in town, we know all the parents. There is no way DD is going to have a sleepover at anyone else's home anytime soon (both because of the other parents and because she is simply not ready).
