Your child’s first sleepover: preparing them (and yourself)

Reading Time: 4 minutes

In many ways, having a sleepover is really one of the first rites of passage that your children will ever have. It is an important kind of socialising for many children, and it can be useful for them in terms of gaining and developing friendships. It is also important for you as a parent; events such as the first sleepover are very often tests which seem designed to enable you to begin to let your child go out into the world. In all likelihood, you will be a little worried first time around. That is perfectly natural, but it’s healthy to try and let it happen too. In this post, we are going to look into some of the things to consider if your child is going on their first sleepover.
