My soon-to-be 12-year-old wants to have a sleepover on her birthday. And she wants to invite her male cousins and other life-long male friends as well as her girlfriends. My husband and I are now arguing about whether a co-ed sleepover is appropriate. I say it’s okay since we know and trust all of these kids whose families we’ve known forever. My husband doesn’t think anything will happen, but remembers what he was starting to think about at that age. Is a co-ed sleepover for 12 year olds acceptable?
What is your advice? – Scott
