On the one hand, I would say that when it comes to your kids, you shouldn't bend. That is a time to hold to a boundary.
On the other hand... how old are they? Have they never been to sleep-away camp? Would it really be such a big deal for them to be away from you both for a couple of days, or would it simply be part of the inevitable march towards greater independence that all children are on?
