Q:I've always allowed my kids' friends to stay over. That's just the way I was raised. My parents let me and my sisters have sleepovers for our birthdays. My middle daughter, who is 17, came out to us late last year. We are close, but I wasn't expecting this. Her dad and I told her we still loved her and accepted her. But here's why I'm writing. She wants her girlfriend, who's a college freshman, to stay over after her prom because they plan on going to the beach the next day. It will save her a trip.

A sleepover at a Bucks County home turned into a sex party between a 38-year-old woman and five boys as young as 14, Lower Makefield Township police said. Police Chief Ken Coluzzi said that the woman, identified as Angela Honeycutt, had sex with a 15-year-old boy in a bathroom. Afterward, she took a 14-year-old boy into the shower where she masturbated him and allowed him to penetrate her with his finger. Coluzzi said that the "sleepover" took place April 14 at the home of Lynne Long, 45, whose son invited the five other boys but was not present when the incidents took place.

She was supposed to have chaperoned a teen party at a neighborhood friend's house. Instead, suburban mother Angela Honeycutt wound up drunk, naked, and in the shower with two of the ninth-grade boys she was supposed to be supervising. For that, Honeycutt was sentenced yesterday in Bucks County Court to at least 11 1/2 months in the county prison. "I lost total control of a serious situation . . .," a sobbing Honeycutt told Judge John J. Rufe. "I have been paying every day for my lack of judgment that horrible night.

WILDWOOD - Maybe you've had one of those evenings on the boardwalk when the rides have tired you out so much you just want to lie down right there and have a snooze beneath the glimmering lights and speeding roller coasters. Well now you can, because on Oct. 4, Morey's Piers will host a first-ever outdoor sleepover on the pier. It's called the "Boardwalk Bunk-Down," and beginning at noon that day, campers can bring tents, sleeping bags, and other supplies to Morey's Adventure Pier and set up camp.

A 13-year-old girl who was unintentionally shot in the chest early Sunday was attending a supervised girls' sleepover, according to her mother. Linda Moye said that her daughter was one of four girls in their North Philadelphia neighborhood who rotated houses for teen sleepovers. It had been earlier reported that the shooting occurred at a house party, raising the question of why the girls were out so late. After this weekend's shooting Moye said that she wishes that she'd never let her daughter attend.

Kristen Lynn Hocker, 15, of Glenolden, and Sandra Lee Boyer, 13, from Springfield, were the best of friends, brought together by their years in classes for the physically disabled. Although the two were inseparable, they had never had a sleepover until Saturday night, at Kristen's house here. That night, the girls died in a house fire that also killed Edward L. Hocker Jr., 17, Kristen's brother and a senior at Interboro High School. When an emergency crew arrived about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, responding to a call from Kristen, they found the two-story, single-family dwelling in flames.

As the hours passed last night with no sign of a 6-year-old Philadelphia girl who disappeared yesterday morning from a sleepover at a Kensington rowhouse, initially optimistic detectives began to think the worst. "I'm worried she could be dead," one veteran investigator said. "She's been gone an awfully long time. " Destiny Wright was last seen going to sleep in a second-floor bedroom with a half-dozen other children in a rowhouse in the 800 block of East Westmoreland Street.

Maybe you noticed all those kids entering the museum while you were on your way out, or perhaps got firsthand experience schlepping and sleeping there with your own son's Boy Scout group. Indeed, pitching makeshift campsites beside a mythical Sphinx, a limp-armed T. rex , or a pulsating heart has been popular for the last 10 years, especially since the Night at the Museum film franchise widened appeal. (The third will be released in December.) But it's almost always been a thing just for kids - until now. In response to adults clamoring for a turn to pack their own toothbrushes, don eye masks, and catch some Z's, museum directors in local landmarks looking for more exposure are holding adult sleepovers, a trend that seems to be gaining ground.

Already, the 10 tween girls have devoured spaghetti tacos, made Lifesaver bracelets, changed into pajamas, and played several giggle-infused rounds of limbo. Next up on this Friday night in Elkins Park is a serious game of human mop - one girl drags another across the floor, which, the girls swear, is more fun than it sounds. The controlled chaos looks like any other sleepover. But as 10:30 p.m. approaches, the living room at the hosting Gormans' becomes increasingly crowded - with parents.

DEAR ABBY: My 12-year-old daughter, "Mandy," was invited to a friend's birthday party along with 12 other girls. They were told to meet at the mall where they'd "go shopping" together, then go for a sleepover afterward. The birthday girl told her friends to bring money as gifts. Well, she raked in more than $300 then proceeded to spend it all on herself while her friends stood and watched. Mandy returned home the next day and told me that although the girl spent the money on herself, her mom did buy them each a beverage.

IT COMES down to one question, really: Can Occupy Philly carry on, if it has to stick to business hours? That's what members of the movement were left to consider last night after the city revealed terms of a potential no-sleepovers-allowed permit for protesters who have called Dilworth Plaza home for the past month. The permit, which would last until Dec. 20, would let Occupy Philly demonstrate on Thomas Paine Plaza, outside the Municipal Services Building, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

DEAR ABBY: My 12-year-old niece "Tammy" is very shy. When I recently visited my brother's home, she hid in her parents' bedroom behind a closed door. She wouldn't come out to say hi or even speak to me through the door. Today I was on the phone with my sister-in-law and I asked if I could say hello to Tammy. I was told Tammy had left the room because she didn't want to talk. My sister-in- law then remarked that she has the shiest kids on Earth. I think Tammy's parents should make her speak to me (or anyone else)

It may have seemed like innocent summer fun for the four teens at the sleepover: sneak out of the house in the middle of the night and go for a joyride in a high-powered sports car. But the driver, 16-year-old Montgomery Wood, didn't even have his learner's permit. Those were among the details that police disclosed Friday about the Chester County crash that killed Wood and a friend, Brittany Leger, 15. Two other passengers, Damien Paterno and Cameron Merlino, both also 15, were injured.

Life was looking pretty good through the eyes of 6-year-old Aasin Williams. The little guy was positively giddy yesterday, and for good reason: He was going to celebrate his last day of first grade by having a sleepover with some pals, his family said. But instead, Aasin spent the night in a hospital, recovering from a gunshot wound. Police said the boy was struck in the shoulder by a stray bullet when a trigger-happy thug shot up 13th and Pike streets in Hunting Park at 4:25 p.m. A 25-year-old man who was the apparent target of the shooter was wounded once in the leg, said Detective Shawn Leahy, of East Detectives.
