And, really, how often have we heard of accidents, molestation, etc. occurring with trusted family members and friends? Not meant to scare people . .. everyone has their own comfort zone . .. . but I'm not sure what people are so scared about.
For me, I want to know that the parent will provide what I think is an appropriate level of supervision (and my view may be skewed younger because my DS is only 5 and just beginning to have playdates). In going to birthday parties, I've observed some parenting styles that I just wouldn't want my kid to have to handle on his own (excessive berating, letting their kid wander off near roads or pools, etc.).
I realize I won't always have the luxury of control, and that's fine, but while he's very young and new to the whole playdate thing, I'm okay with being picky about where he goes.
