Re: Sleepovers ?
I'll have to go back and read what everyone else said, as I'm curious.
To me, it's not so much the age of the child, as it is their readiness and the family they are staying with. My 5 yr old had a sleepover this summer with her cousin. But, it was her cousin and it was right next door to her grandparents' house, which is where we were staying. ODD tried a sleepover at 5 with a friend across the street, but she ended up coming home by midnight. She had spent the night without DH or I at both sets of grandparents' houses, though.
I have to know the family before I will approve a sleepover, though. And I don't mean have to have met them a few times. I mean I have to KNOW them.
