• SLEEP OVERS 

Set your ground rules way in advance in regards to sleepovers. 

If the party was not intended to be a sleepover let your child know that once the party is over, it is over unless you agree in advance for a guest or two to remain through the night. 

You will be exhausted by the end of the party so again this is a great time to know your limitations.  If the party’s theme is a sleepover, then set your ground rules first when making the party plans with your child.

Try to steer away from sleepovers for children under the age of ten unless you already know the children well.  This will save you from the middle of the night wake ups by children who are not yet experienced in spending the night at someone’s home, and having to return them or call a parent to pick them up.
