8 year old up till 4.30 am is unreasonable?

Just picked up my 8 year old DD from a sleepover at her friend from schools house and it turns out she and her friend were up until 4.30 am. The mum came into the room and said it was time to calm down and go to sleep...at 4.30 am!!

I'm really unhappy, in what world is letting 8 year old girls stay awake till that time unaccompanied may I add as the mum was in her bed, okay? 12 am - fair enough, maybe 1 am at a push if excited but 4.30 am is ridiculous and my DD is knackered.

I don't know whether to text the mum. She certainly won't be back there for a sleepover. AIBU?

Dear god what a load of nonsense.

Bar telling them lights out and quiet there's not much you can do if they stay awake playing or chatting. No 8yr old is going to be traumatised from one late night! Just early bed the next day. If you have something on that they need to be alert for then say no thank you to a sleepover the night before.

As for punishing your daughter, words fail me.

No they were no dads present as she is a single mum. It just wouldn't have been allowed at my house. When my DD has had sleepovers they are always in bed at reasonable hour

Are you 100% sure that they are asleep, being in bed at a reasonable hour doesn’t mean much when it comes to sleepovers
