    Kids bedrooms are right near the guest bedroom and parents room is up the other end of the house. So I suppose I am worried about the worst case scenario.

    Ah ok. That actually changes my thoughts now... I'd be a bit uncomfortable about it, too. Totally understand; he could tell the gf he's going to the toilet in the middle of the night and... well like you said, worst case scenario...
    Can you stay in the kids room for that one night?

    Nope, wouldn't have a stranger stay, especially since having kids.

    I was so mad a few years ago (pre kids) when we had DHs good mate stay overnight I told him no bringing any girls home, but he did it anyway. I don't like the thought of someone in my house who I don't know.

    There's no spare bed in the kids rooms and to be honest if I'm concerned enough to sleep in their rooms then I shouldn't be letting him stay at all

    Can you borrow a couple of baby monitors for the night? That way you won't need to sleep in their room but you would certainly hear if someone was going in to the room.

    Not necessarily, it's ok to be cautious, doesn't mean your concerns are warranted, you know what I mean?
    Can you bring the kids in your room? Otherwise yeah, just say no.
    It's a tricky one...

    Hell no!!! Totes different story if you trusted your friend completely and there judge of character...but actually even then for me it would be a stretch. I don't think it's being over protective. Just think about the amount of parents that think "if only I hadn't cared about being paranoid" after bad things happened.

    After reading all the info, no. I don't trust strangers who would be that close to my kids whilst I was so far away.
