Re: Am I really that much stricter than other Moms?
I think our meanest rule is that I don't allow my ds to do sleepovers. If he wants he can have friends here overnight, but I don't allow sleepovers, ever. I told my dh that once they are 18 they can sleep out of the house. The only exception is family or if myself or my dh is with him, like camping.
Your rules are the same as mine for play dates, and those are the rules even at other houses. If we aren't allowed to do it in our house we won't do it at others.
