Some Helpful Alternatives to the Norm of Sleepovers

A growing trend of parents doing away with the practice of sleepovers for their kids stems from a desire to remove bullying and sexual abuse dangers. This has sparked controversy online as public debate surrounds the balance of safety versus personal responsibility in the adolescent years. 

Parenting is not for the faint of heart! Discuss and make a plan for how your family will handle sleepovers with your girl. Whether it’s giving her a code word for a no-questions-asked pick-up from a parent or nixing sleepovers altogether, through prayer trust that your plan is for your girl’s deepest good. 

Proverbs 14:26 gives the Godly parent confidence that the Lord honors their efforts to protect their children. He will be your girl’s refuge in times of uncertainty.
