My 12 year old daughter asked her best friend and She said yes.
They have been best Friends since birth. And have sleepovers all the time. My question is this. If She would have a boyfriend I obviously wouldn't let them shave a sleepover because of their age. But I don't feel it is right to stop sleepovers now all of a sudden. I am a bit lost. They are the cutest couple though! Advice, please.

Gay & Lesbian
Talk to them about safe sex and consent. If you have to google about safe sex for lesbians that's ok. And make sure they both understand no means no. (Except in the case of safe words, but then what's really happening is that no still means no, you just use a different word to mean no)

i feel like you have to treat the sleepovers the same especially if they’re now a couple. at least probably make an open door policy? although your daughter is 12 so nothing will probably happen for a few years. i feel like someone posted a similar question here or in r/actuallesbians asking about a 12 yo daughter in a queer relationship. you might look for that post.

I'd allow sleepovers. Kids will experiment no matter what, it's safer to be at home than somewhere on the outside
