Sleepovers yay or nay
They're okay in their place.

I believe that there is a right time for sleepovers – maybe 10 years old or so. However, you have to know the parents (hosts) very well. As long as you know for sure that they share your views on rules, boundaries and values and will implement those where needed, it should be fine.
