How well do you need to know the parents?
If your older child wants to spend the night with a friend, how well do you need to know the parents?
My oldest child has spent the night at friends houses where I didn't know the parents very well. I did ask her questions like if she was comfortable staying there.
For my ten year old I need to know the parents. He, in my eyes, is not old enough to make an informed decision about the safety of a friends house.
What are your thoughts?
So maybe it is better to know the parents? Or not? I don't know, teens are sneaky.
