Advice for sleepovers

Here's the thing about sleepovers. They're great for kids. And they're terrible for parents. Kids are not guaranteed a sleepover every weekend. They should be reserved for special occasions. Because the truth is, your kid is going to be wrecked the next day. So instead of making it something your kids always assume they're going to be able to do, save it for a really special occasion. And in that case, you can let them stay up a little bit later, you can let them have fun. But if it's an every weekend occurrence, you're going to have a kid who's useless the next day. And sleepovers with more than two kids, you can pretty much lop off an extra hour a night for every extra kid you have. So be careful about those group sleepovers because no one's goingto be happy the next day.
