When do kids get tired of sleepovers? Okay, really I am tired of them with my oldest being 12.
hmmm you know to this day I guess I still have some sleep overs they are a little different style. Sometimes after a concert I either crash at a friends house or they crash at mine but we usually are out of eachother's houses pretty quickly because of our busy schedules with work and school and other events.
Well I guess its all about what your child likes. If they have a set group of friends the sleepover thing can actually drift into early college years. I mean, its a way for kids to hang out with a lesser chance of trouble because hopefully there is an adult in the house.
I never went to sleepover as a child because I was a home body. But even as a 26 year old woman I might just have one with my female friends because we are all busy and can't really connect with one another
Early adulthood people stop sleepovers. I know that ages 16-19 still have them. There actully very benefitial to people.
Depends on you really .
I kinda didnt mind if it suited everyone in the house-hold, or if my son(s) had negotiated a litte before hand. Reward thing.
Also if its reciprocated (they sleep-over at friends) then balances up sometimes.
I had 3 sons and the house always had kids I didnt recognise lol but that was me ,my hubby wasnt into the scene much ,so I toned it down to 'occassionally' and only vacation or long week-ends.
p.s they never get tired of them , I still wish someone would ask me lol
Umm I'm almost 22 and I still have sleep-overs. But now they're at my own house I don't think they ever end. My sister is 17 and she still has them. I don't see anything wrong with them. My parent's doors were always open, they know all of our friends. There is always a bunch of people at our house. I can understand how that can get annoying, having to feel like you have to entertain, cost of food, etc. But there is a good way and a bad way to do it.
Getting to know your kids friends really well. If they're like my brother and sister they have a group of friends they will always have, and then a few people come and go. My friends feel so comfortable at my parent's house, they clean up after themselves, ask my parents for advice, will make something to eat, but then do all the dishes in the sink.
My kids had sleepovers into high school, but I limited them to one or two friends by that point, not 6 or 7, and I also tried to keep them in their rooms. Although, one night I found my 16-year-old (at the time) daughter in the kitchen with her best friend (who was sleeping over) at 3 AM cooking up about 6 different things including two kinds of cake.
I will not pretend I handled that very well.
Wow was I honked off!
All my kids survived and now are happy adults with jobs and spouses. I don't know how that happened. It's a miracle.
The last one I ever had or went to was when I was eleven or so.
I stopped after that- Little Johnny ate all the other kids when we ran out of food, and I had nightmares for years.
I was asked at times after that, but I turned down the idea.
I can only speak from my own perspective, but I stopped having them when I was like 13, please look at my hubs, I started yeesterday and haven't had to many looks yet
I never had a problem with the kids having sleepovers. It was a great time for them to interact, tell each others secrets, and bond great friendships. I did have issues when they were teens because they want to stay up all night talking while I had to work early in the morning....sleep deprivation!!!
My girls have maintained the most contact with the same sleepover friends they had throughout school. Now they have their own pads to hold their slumber jams....
