This very thing is going on at our house right now!! DD14 is invited to a sleepover at a friend's house, whom I have never met. She has alot of friends and is allowed to go quite a few places, b/c I know the parents and the girls are allowed to come here also.
I know that i'll probably get some flack about this b/c she is 14 but I still worry. You have to worry about everyone in that house, mom's boyfriend, the daddy, older step brother, whatever the case is. I'll admit that I am paranoid as hell, when it comes to my kids. People are so fucking crazy.
Anyway, we are probably letting her go, but I really don't want to :( I will be crazy mom that night and text her like crazy...lol!
i wont let dh bathe or dress my 4 year old niece anymore bc i dont want people to have ANYTHING they can use to stir up trouble. (mostly my nieces dad who has tons of issues.) its not that i dont trust my dh with her, he is her uncle and was there the day she was born. he loves her like his own and has cared for her like his own. i just dont want to give people ammo needlessly.
im also lazy, it is waaaaay easier for you to bring your kid here and i mind them, then for me to pack up my group and bring them to you. id rather never have an afternoon free and have a slew of kids running rampent and knowing who and what my kid is getting into then always wonder.
i think DS has been to 3 ppls houses that are not relatives in his 3 years....
