SLEEPOVER: SHOULD THEY BE ALLOWED OR NOT
Sleepover is an important topic of conversation. It is a big dilemma for parents whether to be okay with it or not. A sleepover is basically where children go to their friends house to sleep at night.
There are different opinions about a sleepover in parents. So let’s discuss the positives and negatives of the same. In the recent years many parents are deciding against the idea of a sleepover. Times are changing and the trust factor among adults is reducing.
Parents can never completely know a person. No matter how much we’d like to think we know our friends and neighbors, sometimes we hardly know them at all. This isn’t a matter of distrust; it’s a matter of keeping your children safe. Of course you can still maintain friendships and relationships with them, but the best place for your children to sleep at night is at home, in their own beds. Whether or not your friends and neighbors are good or bad people aren’t the question – it’s a matter of keeping your children away from potentially bad situations. A sleepover is not necessarily a good idea.
As adults parents also know that nothing good happens after midnight.It is just an excuse. There is hardly any sleeping done. Even with a good amount of parental supervision, kids have a way of keeping secrets and sneaking around. Bringing children together for a long night to sleep in the same room together can bring about potentially negative things – things you may not want your child to be exposed to. Not allowing a sleepover prevents unnecessary things from happening.
All this being said there are certain parents who believe that kids need to have their share of fun during their childhood. A sleepover is one of the things kids enjoy doing. A way in which parents can feel completely carefree during is by having it in their own house. This makes sure their children can have all the fun during a sleepover and also be safe and sound in their own house.
Also waking up in a different environment in the morning when having a sleepover in someone else’s house can be a bit setting off. This is also prevented if it is in their own house. Parents can also send their children to relatives house for a sleepover so that they feel more secure and under less tension.
In case parents have a no sleepover rule they should stick to it. Parents should also try and make sure that children don’t feel left out or sad regarding the same. They should be made to understand why certain steps are taken so that they are not disappointed.
