To Sleepover or Not to Sleepover: One Parent’s Dilemma

So, the time has arrived when you child is invited to his/her first sleepover party.

This very dilemma was faced by Bruce Devereaux whose 9-year old daughter was invited to her first sleepover. Read about his decision, and then let us know what you would you do.
