[Solved] Are boy/girl sleepover parties OK?


Are boy/girl sleepover parties OK, and should I let teenage boys & girls sleep in the same room?

Hi - i quess this is about trust and about age of the kids. Are your worst fears that the kids might go past 1st base and sex is the outcome?

I only have younger kids but oh course hope they grow up to be boys who would be well behave well in such a situation but then as a christain i will be teaching them about waiting to have sex within marriage. If my kids reject my beliefs then i can't expect them to live by my rules thats unfair so some middle ground needs to be made ie no sex under 16.

So.... in thinking about allowing any sleepover of mixed sexes i would need to take all factors into account and make a decision and any ground rules based on those factors.

what are you thinking about doing?

I would probably say they need to sleep in separate rooms, just keeps life a bit simpler. It's amazing how many people you can fit in one house, and I can't imagine a situation where you could not make that arrangement in some form.
Obvioulsy they might all fall asleep infront of the tv.. but then that isn't really a problem!

Are 16+ in the "sleep over" category anyway?
