    This is my situation. Theres is a girls b'day party. She is turning 17. I know her very well. I know all the people who are going to the party. Her parent is going to be there.

    My parents dont know the girl or the people going. I am 17. They wont let me sleep over.

    Overprotective? thoughts?

    hahaha, as far as I know, the chances of your parents letting you sleep over at a girl's house at that age are very close to zero, unless you have very liberal parents. Or unless they know the girl's family from many years.

    Overprotective would be them going with you or not letting you go at all to the party. Or spying on you from the driveway outside, etc.

    Yeah that's not over protective, that's common sense. Whether you try anything or not, we all know you're at least thinking about it.

    Plus, guys never sleep over at a sleepover, that's just... odd.

    I'd say it is overprotective, but then again I am very liberal (actually I'm more libertarian than liberal, but that's for another thread...). It's not surprising though. And even if your parents let you do it, I can't imagine too many parents letting a boy sleep over with their 17 year old daughter.

    I'm with Napalm on this, I think while it is a little over protective it's still the norm.

    Tell them you will phone/text them regularly.
    It's all about trust man.
    And don't think it's not you that your parents don't trust, it's the people your with.

    Eh. This is probably due to your relationship with your parents, not your age. Parents can be overprotective even if you're like, thirty. My grandmother needs all the information on guys my mom goes out with, even if my mother is over 40. It's just the nature of parents, and you'll probably do this too. My mom is worried if I don't text her about me whereabouts, but she doesn't really mind.

    It's not overprotective if your parents expect you to go crazy at parties. It's not if they don't know your friends either. They just assume that the worst is going to happen, so you have to convince them that you won't by being respectful to them. Meaning that, I wouldn't whine if they don't let you go. They probably will if you're good to them often. It's called sucking up, master the art of it.

    I would have thought the girls parents would be more over protective to be honest, not yours!

    It make me wonder what my parents would have done... I never put them in the situation though. And now? Well, they'd be cool with me sleeping over at a guy's house, but... they'd give me the third degree about him! I think I'd prefer NOT to sleep over there. And I think I am more then old enough, but yeah.

    Typically, the girl's parents are usually the overprotective ones.

    Odd.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

    Well it looks like they weren't just being overprotective.

    If you're the only one that's sleeping over, then its common sense. But if all of them are sleeping over then its overprotecting. I doubt there would be a gangbang or something. Riiiight? D:

    so it was a bad idea for you to have gone to the party (depending on their view). regardless, if they frown upon this behavior, then you betrayed their trust. if they find out, then don't go crying about how unfair they are.

    Oh no, he got a hicky and a hangover!

    I'd hardly call that anything to get worked up about at his age.

    im just saying that if the parents' were concerned about a sleepover in the first place, then chances are they wouldn't be keen on excessive drinking and hickies.
    the guy is only 17, when the drinking age is 21 (assuming he's a yank), and that is then underage.
