If you cannot be honest with the general public about your lifestyle choice, how do you deal with your children wanting to have friends visit your home especially if you all live together in the same home?
For us, we allow the children's friends to visit and even spend the night. We never offer an explanation, and their friends strangely never even ask. In fact, one of our children has four of his friends spend the night at least twice a month for the past year, and not one time has any of his friends asked any questions and neither have any of their parents. Our oldest when he was a teen would have his teen friends spend the night at least twice a month as well, and all of his friends knew about our living arrangement. They actually though it was cool, and wished they too had a loving family like ours. They called me mom.
I guess for us offering no explanation has served us best.
How about you? What would you do?
