Sleeping outside the home can be an adventure for the little ones in the house, as it is certainly an experience that also enriches them. Give this opportunity is undoubtedly an event for children who will enjoy it very much.
Generally it is from the age of six when the child can already be prepared to sleep outside the home compartir and share this experience relating to other children of his age, something that will help him to reinforce his self-esteem and to create bonds and emotional bonds more strong and lasting with others. Possible fears of children who refuse to sleep outside As in all first times to something (adults also do not pass), the first time a child goes to spend the night away from home is likely to feel some fear so that everything goes well, that is why the role of parents is so important in this important event to resolve their possible fears.
When the child experiences
this fear of sleeping outside the home
you should not avoid going through this since the fact that the child is able to sleep outside will make you believe internally and realize that it was not cause for nerves, so that surely and after a fun night I want to repeat that kind of adventure more times. But neither should we demand that he go or comfort him too much in the face of the situation, above all we should normalize it
and give him confidence that everything will be fine ... overprotection will never help good child development. We must respect the rhythm of each child But it is true that if the child does not want to go to a camp or a friend's house to sleep because he does not feel ready yet,
he will not have to be forced in any case
because it can be as counterproductive as forbidding him to do so when he wants to enhance this experience. As in other development skills, each child has their own rhythm and their decisions must be respected. If you do not want to do it one day you can try another one and in between you can talk to him to know exactly what your fears are, but you will have to wait until he feels prepared for himself. Communication with children is essential
It is also essential
to talk to him before the special night
and prepare everything for when he goes to sleep outside. So it is essential to ask how he feels and encourage him in this adventure. Surely he is looking forward to it! In addition you have to give him the confidence that if he needs something he can call by phone, but to make him feel safe he must know what will happen so that the more organized the night is the better. It is also important to tell the parents of the friend or the camp monitors what needs, tastes or preferences the child has to take into account and avoid unnecessary conflicts.
