Sleepovers and the hidden danger for your children

Do you follow the trends of sleep overs and such as your parents allowed you when you were young? Perhaps your parents did not know how to wisely instruct you to avoid them at certain "friends" homes. Sadly there are homes where sleepovers are dangerous as children come back hurt and discouraged for the rest of their life. The household may have persons with predator behaviors, pornographic problems, witch craft, strange religious practices, or a rapist in the home and the people look good and godly on the outside. We never know who or where those types of people are located. Before reading further please consider the following passages from scripture.

1 Chronicles 9:33
And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night.

1 Chronicles 17:3
And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,

1 Chronicles 17:3
And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,

Acts 5:19
But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,

1 Thessalonians 5:5
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

1 Thessalonians 5:7
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

The above passages teach us that there is a problem in the night time. It existed in the times of the bible and it still exists today. Of course there are night shift workers today like doctors, shipping persons, security and such who are doing good and not evil as there were workers in Chronicles who sang night and day, but in general the pattern is that evil and dark behavior is found in human behavior during the night. I my self worked at a nursing home in the night shift and even elderly people show some illicit behavior during the night hours.

What kinds of evil behavior show up more exclusively in human behavior towards the night hours? Drunkenness, pornographic trends, illicit and dark spiritual religious trends, rapist behavior, thieving behavior, illegal drug use, child molestation and more. All we need to do is check police reports and value the time of day these happenings occurred. The majority more than likely happened in the night hours.

Because this is true, is it wise to allow your children to attend a sleepover of any flavor or kind? Especially one that is unsupervised by parents of both families. The answer is a resounding NO! For many they may continue to allow children to sleep over at friend's home because they believe so and so is friendly and kind in some way. However, children are not trained, nor can they be trained in full maturity on how to escape the evil nature built up in human life. It is a risk where the child can end up scared for life because they cannot see the real nature behind some people. Do not believe that you are sending your child into the darkness and somehow they will shine as a light during these evil dark hours. 9 out of 10 times satan wins, and your child ends up raped, molested, taught strange religious tricks, encouraged to gamble, truth or dare evils and other evil behaviors.

How can one's child socialize effectively and safely if they are never allowed to go alone to a sleep over? You can follow one of these trends: 1. Host the sleep over at your home and invite the parents too (for example distant friends come to your home for a visit)! 2. Only allow social activities to take place during the day. 3. Serve elderly or poor in the community with positive values and service. 4. Camp out with a group of adults and children so that all parents are aware of the behavior of other adults in the group. (Avoid the hippy trend in this situation however). 5. If an emergency sleepover is necessary either have the child stay at a trusted older woman's home temporarily.

Have you allowed your child to stay over at another person's home? Make sure you have clear and confident communication with your child. The child who "hides" things from momma or daddy or is taught to hide things from them from certain friends has been more than likely hurt by such situations.

The wisest and more protective parents have been known to never allow sleep overs in their household and such all the way up until they are able to either serve as missionary, habitat for humanity or other service, until they are married and have a household of their own or until they reach the age of 25 and are spiritually grounded in biblical knowledge and maturity. For the sake of the child, consider wisely how you will allow sleepovers to happen in your home. Even the friendly looking movie that your child's friend wants them to watch over-night has its New World Order trends that contribute more to sensual and relationship dissolution than contributing to the value of preserving long-lasting friendship.

So how about you....do you consider it odd to not allow sleepovers in a household with children? Were you hurt or exposed to something horrible at a sleep over? Did you feel the peer pressure increase when you participated in a sleep over? Are you willing to actually protect your children from evils that lurk at night in human life or do you feel confident that your child knows how to escape these evils on their own?

1 Thessalonians 5:5
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
