Rachel Campos-Duffy writes parenting blogs and wrote one on when the right time is to allow sleep overs and she was shocked how many women commented and said it was at sleep overs that they were molested as children. Her husband is a DA and she said he deals with this issue a lot also.
We rarely allowed our children sleep overs. I will never forget Ruth Graham Bell saying that she wanted all her children under her roof at night. I agreed with her. With the proliferation of pornography, even in Christian homes, we must be very proactive in protecting our children.
I went to sleep overs when I was young. I remember doing seances, playing with a Ouija board, playing spin the bottle, eating tons of junk food; nothing that was productive or healthy. Thankfully, I was never molested but I could see how it could easily happen if there are older brothers in the home, step-fathers, uncles, etc.
