If your kids have sleepovers, how late are they allowed to stay up?

It's not really been an issue in our house. Our kids have always had more tolerance to staying up late than their friends. THEY might be up for staying up until the wee hours but their friends rarely make it to 11. Seriously, there have been friends that came to spend the night but are so tired they are out by 9 lol. Of course, I always make them do some sort of physical activity like walk the dog or play basketball. We usually do something like go to the beach or the zoo when friends are involved... that wipes them out I guess!

I will say though, we certainly allow "stay up as late as you want" but on those occasions they have to be up early, it's really not been an issue. The guest is always compliant and my kids follow suit not wanting to be awake alone on a sleepover. When we are doing something fun the next morning they'll go to sleep at 8 if I ask lol.

Does your DD have much experience with sleepovers? Gosh, we have them constantly and almost always at our house it seems (between the two kids.) It may still be a novelty for your DD that will wear off a bit the more she does it.

My DD is 12, and she has some, but not a lot, of sleepover experience.

I never cared, as long as you don't keep me awake! My kids are both in scouts, so sleepovers are no big deal as they do overnights with friends anyway. Ds is 14 and I think he has had a few friends over a few times his whole life. He goes to a friend's house, we have pets and this boy has bad allerfgies to them, now and then to play video games until their eyes bleed. Again, the parents have the same rule, just don't wake us!!

Wow, you know some rotten kids!! When we have kids, they eat pizza, watch movies and eat junk food. As my 12th year of being a scout leader, I need to sleep, if the kids want to stay up all night tittering, fine, don't keep those who want to sleep up. I could never stay up as long as a kid was awake to supervise them. My scouts are good kids, as are my kids friends. I would never allow a kid I did not trust in my house for the night.
