I let my daughter who is 14 spend the night with her friend after a dance at school the girl came to her party in Oct the dance was in Nov so the girl sked could my daughter spend th night again I said no the girl can spend the night here. I just don't believe in letting my kids stay at other peoples house all the time but your child can't come to my house. So Sat they want to go to the movies I say ok and that she needs to be home at 4 they are going to the morning show the mom gone say if she can't spend the night its a no go because gas cost a lot. I told my daughter I didn't ask her to bring you home I will pick you up and I drive a truck, but there is no way yo gone brow beat me into letting my daughter stay at your house gas or no gas.Gas gone cost the same the next day and if yo leave after you get home you still using gas. So I need to know am I wrong so much going on in the world and I am beginnig to not like the parents. Please give me some feed back on this. thanks

I am not into letting kids stay in other people's house. You just don't know. Times are different and these kids know a lot of things already that they have picked up from the internet and TV. We have to be careful about letting them sleep in other people's houses most especially if your child is a girl.

As a parent, you should go with your gut. I feel the same that it should be a two way street. Your daughter should have her to your house as well so you can get to know her friend. I think that sometimes parents forget to use their best judgment and let things go to far and then it opens a door for danger. If you are feeling apprehensive I am sure it is for a reason and you should stick to your heart on it. We have to protect our children and it sounds like you are being very reasonable. Best of luck to you!

Absolutely! I think you are doing a wonderful thing for your daughter! You should be proud and strong with your decisions! I imagine there is a lot more to parenting when you are doing it alone, I commend you!

I think every parent is like you. there should be some kind of security and the kids are too young to be left unsupervised. it is bad thought to let the kids go at other's place all the time. be careful. good day.

Your daughters friends moms sounds like she is a very miserable and unreasonable person. If I had kids I will not allow them to go with complete strangers. I say you where not wrong in what you did. Always go with your conscience your gut your human instance if you sense danger then there usually is danger. So just keep being a good parent even if your daughter thinks its overprotective. But in your eyes she will be your little girl and you will be mom the loving nuturing protecting one.

I would be alittle worried, as 14 years old is an age you have to really watch kids. They are beginging to think about boys more. I think you are doing the right thing, to keep a close eye on her. Have a great weekend there....
