Parenting 101 Sleeoover Suggestions--Helping Your Child Feel More Comfortable (NAPS)--While some kids beg their parents to attend sleepover after sleepover, many are appmbensive about spend- ing the night away from home, especially those who may have bedtime issues, ffyour child is afraid of the dark, occa- sionally wets the bed or is just nervous about sleeping some- where new, sleepovers can often be a source of anxiety and pressure for him or her. As a parent, you can help them feel more comfortable and at ease with these sleep- over suggestions from the GoodNites NiteLite TM Panel. For more sleepover tips and compassionate support for your child's bedtime issues, visit www.Go(xites.com. To Grandmother's House They Go Dawn Meehan, mother of six and author of Because I Said So.., recommends doing a sleepo!er "test run" some- where tey're already com- fortable withlike Grandma's house. "If your child is appre, hensive about sleeping over at a friend's house, you might want to set up a sleepover at Grandma's or another close relative's house," Meehan sakL "This can be a great way to help your child gain confi- dence." To ensure the practice sleepover goes smoothly, make sure Grandma knows about their bedtime concerns in advance. Host the Sleepover at Your House Often, kids struggle with sleepovers because they fear embarrassment if their friends learn about their nighttime issues. "Social acceptance plays a major role in devel- oping and maintaining self- esteem," said Dr. Jennifer Trach-tonberg, pediatrician bnd mother of three. If your child is concerned about stay- ing at a friend's house, have the first sleepover at your house and limit it to just one Help your child feel more comfortable attending sleepovers. friend so he or she is not over- whelmed. Having the sloop- over at your house creates a safe zone where your child can enjoy the fun experience, increasing willingness to ven- ture to a friend's house in the future. Plus, they can be more discreet about using a night light or putting on GoodNites Underwear for comfort and protection if they wet the bed. Keep Sleepover Conversations Casual Constantly talking about sleepovers or bedtime issues may increase their fears. Don't push your children to attend or host sleepovers if they're not ready--the last thing you want them to f_l is pressured. Instead, casually bring it up in conversation, like "This would be a fun game to play with your friends at a sleep- over," so they can warm up to the idea. Share Your Sleepover Stories Sometimes, kids find com- fort in knowing they're not alone. Share your experiences with your children about the fun sleepovers you attended as a kid and give them a chance to ask questions or express their anxiety. "Remember, effective com- munication is a two-way street so listen closely to what your children toll you and val- idate their concerns and feel- ings," said Dr. Trachtenberg. They'll enjoy hear your sto- ries and may be more inter- ested in attending the next sleepover if they know you had good experiences.
