Of course they should. As a parent myself, I can tell you that this is absolutely, period amen not a blindness issue. Good for your parents for not allowing a sleepover with people that she presumably had never met. Of course, a hundred years after, we don't know the circumstances surrounding this. Was there enough time that she could have talked to or met with this other family?

When I went home that evening, I asked my mom if I could go to the sleepover and she said no.  I was so sad because I could not go to my friend's house.  My parents did not allow me to go because thex did not know my sighted friend or her parents.  Should blind kids be allowed to attend sleepovers with their sighted friends? Hope to hear from you soon.
