Such a convenient bed as the King Koil is, there are still a few things you should consider before hosting a sleepover. A sleepover is an important ego building exercise for young children; as they become more independent, they will want to test boundaries and develop a sense of self.
While most parents worry about a first-time sleepover, the worry is usually misplaced. The most important rule for having a sleepover is communication. Talk with your child, are they ready for a sleepover? Did they express the desire to have one? If so then they are ready, and most of the hard work is out of the way.
Every child is unique, and so too are their needs and wants. Some children are boisterous, with little to no fear of social interaction. Some children are intense, inward, and reserved. Children need to discover who they are independently, and the journey often starts with a sleepover.

Communicating with your child is the best way of establishing their interest in having a sleepover. When they are ready, they will let you know. Talk to the parents of your soon to be guest, exchange contact details, and be willing to make an awkward late-night phone call if any problems occur.
