Giving Permission To A Child Going Overnight
November 29, 2017 7:14am CST
As much as possible I don't want to give permission to my eldest child sleeping overnight in his classmate's house. He said they will work on their case studies and they need to work overnight. I don't want to give my permission. He was crying to explain to me the importance of their work. I said I don't believe that alibi and Aj was persistent to go. I let him. Anyway he is 18 years old now and I hope he is responsible enough to think of his safety.

Here 18 does not need permission to go out. But I do know when those days were my situation I would let kay have a sleep over at my house. I was happy to always know they were safe. Parents took a lot of advantage of that but I don't mind now.

@ilocosboy that is a Filipino upbringing and I can understand you. I am also like you when I am in Pinas. Those nieces who live under my roof have to ask me permission to go out with their friends. They are my responsibility as they are living with me. You know their are lots of bad things going on in our country.

If he was a child I would understand but 18, that is old enough that if he makes a mistake, that is on him, not on you. Like how my mamma raised me, I can do anything I want, I just have to suffer the consequences and she would not bail me out because it would be my own fault. Never done anything too crazy to get me into any kind of trouble with that kind of raising.
