Well, lets see, lol, this is a funny question, lol. Things and times are a little bit different now than the it was ten/fifteen years ago when I was little.
When I was little we used to try and sleepover the house who's friend was going to have the least supervision, like 7-13, a sleepover meant that we (my friends and my brother) were going to cause mischief because we were little bastards, lol. But we were kids, just wild kids. In the summer it was pool hopping, lol, (we would go swimming in the rich peoples' pools, in the neighborhoods, when it was really late at night in the summer. The rich people were also sleeping). In the fall, around Halloween, we would go pumpkin smashing. Near Christmas, we would put ornaments from one yard into the neighbors, or in the street. In the spring, we would do things like play manhunt/kick the can/ those kind of hide and seek games where you use a large area to play like a few blocks or a certain neighborhood. We were creative little bastards who loved the adrenaline rush you get from testing the limits as kids seeing what we could get away with. And my older brother wasn't the best influence. I had to learn to learn from his mistakes and not copy them. Took a while, lol, but I got it.
Then I started hanging out with my uncle, sleeping over his house on the weekends. I Stayed out of trouble.
Then my group of friends completely changed. Started to do different things. From the time I was 15-19, well that was like the experimental years. Shit you're suppose to do when your in college. I played a lot of video games, the internet was spreading to every house. Got my license. Got a car a little later. People started having house parties when their parents went away. I hung out with an older crowd so people were able to get things like alcohol, whatever. It wasn't like a sleepover it was like a weekend party most of the time. Again, testing a different kind of limits, but also there were a few different crowds of people that I was actually hanging out with and they all mixed so there were some crazy nights and then some not so crazy. But there was a lot to learn from.
And after that I really changed crowds again and narrowed down my friends to the people that mattered and people who were just acquaintances. I tried doing the same thing with my time, trying not to spend a lot of time, just wasting time. So now if a friend sleeps over, it just because he's too drunk to drive and I don't feel like driving them home and dropping off their car later.
Unless you're little, lol, sleepovers are usually over-rated.1
