    Default Mixed slumber party

    My twins are turning ten soon. . A boy and a girl. I said they could have a party. They want a slumber party, 5 kids each. Would you let you let your 9/10 year olds come to a mixed sleep over? If so what would be the conditions? Sleeping in one big room? Two bedrooms? Or should I do two parties? Obviously I would keep an eye on the evening.
    I know most of the parents, and I totally understand if they would prefer their child did not come. I just wanted a consensus before sending out the invites. I don't want two disappointed children.
    Thanks

    I would allow the slumber party but id make boys and girls sleep in seperate rooms.
    Or alternatively... they can all sleep in one big room providing you sleep there too.
    I remember being 10-11 and kids kissing.... i hear they get up to worse things now days.

    If it where me I'd prob go 2 parties which I know would cost a bit more but then each party is allocated to each child and not a combo and then dad can take the other child out for some 1 on 1 time etc or stay home and help

    I hear ha with the concerns... But when did life get so complicated! I like the idea of a joint one but you stay in the same room... If you do two I can see the but who goes first issue coming up. And if movies are involved then you have who likes what etc... Good luck I hope you work out what works for you and your family there are no right or wrongs in parenting it's hard and it's hard to please everyone

    I was WOWing at the amount of kids and not the mixed genders!

    I don't know how I feel about it as my kids are much younger. I think I would do it separate rooms though. So the kids will all feel comfortable.

    I have a 9yo DD and wouldn't feel comfortable with a mixed sleepover, even with a family I knew well. I would say have seperate parties, even though it's more work for you
