You trust your pre-teen or teenager, but then they ask if they can attend a sleepover that both boys and girls will attend. Do you let them go? If so, what are the rules? If not, what do you tell them?

That is an easy one, nope! Even what they had a co-ed lock in at church, I said no! Now, if they were in different areas, ex, boys in the gym and girls in classrooms, then perhaps.

Unequivocally, NO! Why put your child under that kind of pressure? Seems irresponsible. Beth

Seems like so far we all agree!

I'd say no - my daughter's pretty level-headed and not likely to do anything wrong, but why invite trouble? Easier just to avoid that situation altogether.

I would let her go to a supervised coed lock-in, though. If a teenager is so determined to have sex that they'll risk doing it at a church event with people all around, I don't think any amount of restriction will stop them.

I'd say no but I'm trying to think if there is any reason why I might say yes.
