I would allow it as long as they are being responsible. I don't want my kids bringing their casual bf's or gf's overnight but once they've been together for 6 months or more I've allowed it. Like my daughter said, mom we can sneak around and do it in the car or we can be honest about it and sleep here.
DSD will be 18 in June and has been seeing a boy for approx 5 months. She doesn't usually do 'boyfriends' so this is the first boy she's taken an interest in. Anyhoo, she asked last month if she could stay over at BFs, I said yes and kind of talked DH into it (it saves her coming home on bus at 11pm that kind of thing). Next day he decided it wasn't right blah de blah. The following week she asks if he could stay over here, DH said NO and that was that. Roll forward 1 month and she wants him to stay over tonight, they're on the same shift today/tomorrow morning. Again I dont have a problem with it but DH won't be happy. I rationalise this as a) I know she's taking precautions b) if they're here we know she's safe c) they're doing it anyway so lets not kid ourselves DH d) DSS (27) is in the room next door to her with his bloody girlfriend. What do you think; am I too soft?? (I will use thread as either ammunition for DH or DSD whichever way it goes) thank you
