SLEEP OVERS ARE OVER – The days of sleep overs … are over!” So says a nationally known youth and family expert. And today on License to Parent, our expert, Trace Embry, tells us why.
Well, what this expert is talking about is the fact that we’re in a new millennium. It’s not 1959 anymore, and what you don’t know about your kid’s friend’s parents … may surprise you. So allowing your child to spend the night with people you, and even they, don’t really know, is an absolute recipe for disaster in today’s technology-fueled post-Christian culture. What does the other family consider appropriate when it comes to television, music, movies, and activities? The only place I’d could ever think of approving a sleep-over would be in my own home–and with kids whose backgrounds I know and who are OK with being regularly monitored.
