The idea of throwing our daughter a slumber party can fill many of us mums with a sense of dread.

A group of shrieking teenage girls fuelled by too much sugar coupled with the possibility of hormone-induced mood swings would have many of us running for cover, but it may be time to change our minds on this one.

Slumber parties are the perfect way to get to know your daughter's galpals a little better while also offering an insight into the world which our teenage girls inhabit, but insist on keeping secret from us.

Yes, she may not want you there, but it's your house, so it's time to get involved, ladies.
