With his younger brother. Also how do you keep them off the Xbox all night and encorage them to go bed at a reasonable time?? Would you tell them lights out by 10pm?? I thought I'd got away with it as ds has never been bothered before 😁 and because he shares a room. I want them to have fun but I also want them to sleep as his moods are bad as it is.

Remove the non-sleepover brother. (Sofa? Your bedroom floor?)
Or put the sleepover kids in the living room.

Tell them x-box is finishing at a certain time. Then feed them hot chocolate and some toast or supper.

Accept they will be talking for hours, but don't let them run about, be too noisy or disturb the brother.

When it gets too late (Very very late!) threaten all sorts!

That sounds like a plan!!! Thanks for the advice 😁 I'm hoping I can them out of the house for a few hours but neither like football

They sound like my 12 year old DS.

Good luck!

when I had room-sharers, sleepover happened in the living room, and I factored in non sleeping sad. We didn't have Xboxes or the like though, so when the DVDs finished, they tended to drop off to sleep.
