ds1 had a sleepover yesterday with two of his friends - he got back at about half 4 and has been utterly hideous ever since

I know it's caused by lack of sleep, but that's no excuse for the rudeness, swearing and general "whatever"-ness that I've had to put up with

He apologised before going to bed and has turned back into sweet, affectionate ds1 but I'm buggered if I'm going to say yes to a sleepover again in a hurry hmm

I'm assuming this is fairly normal behaviour (he's 12.5) but am wondering how we're both going to survive the next couple of years ...

I thought it was only girls who did this ... My sympathies ... I never know what is worse, sdd after s/o or having multiple teenage girls here ...

lack of sleep and sugar filled shit.

it gets better when they are just drunk on the steps of the train station (dd last night)

DS is fine and happy after sleepovers.

DD on the other hand... hmm

DS was much, much worse after a sleepover than DD.
I think it's because the boys don't sleep. They spend all night on the playstation.

Girls, I've found, do talk into the small hours but they do go to sleep eventually.
One time when DS was about 14 he had a sleepover and another planned for the next night.
He came home from the first one so knackered he fell asleep on the sofa. He woke up so disorientated that he ended up crying. He didn't make that night's sleepover.

I've started a thread about the exact opposite here -its really unnerving as after previous sleepovers shes been so grumpy and foul but this time shes being so ...^nice. hmm

Absolutely, and it's EVERY weekend! I usually have someone (or 2) here Friday's and dd13 goes someone's Saturday. So Fridays I spend locked in my room with a bottle of wine and earplugs, tip toe around till they surface about lunchtime and then spend the rest of the day clearing up. And then Saturday night/Sunday morning is bliss.

Yes they are awful when they come back. There should be some type of quarantine for children to go to after sleepovers.

mine (only 12) is grim the day after the night before IYSWIM. So if there was a sleepover on friday, it is Sunday when we cop for it...
Like today for example...he has been taken out for the day to a skate park by another mum and bloody best of luck to her, say I!grin
He gets invited every weekend . I miss him tbh....!

I suspected we wouldn't be the only ones suffering grin

he's just asked if he can go on another sleepover this week - hah! no chance ....

We are having 3 here back to back

before I agreed I said that i knew she would want to be tired and grumpy but if there was one hint of dissatisfaction towards me she would spend the rest of the week in her room

so far so good grin

warning in advance works in this house

DS aged 13 was vile and poisonous after the last sleepover for 3 days.
It seems to be a matter of honour to stay awake as long as possible, he'd been awake until 5 am and the up early as they were in tents.
He's going to another on Friday I may threaten him that if he's evil after this one I'll say no next time.
We have not hosted one so far as it's a new thing here.Not looking forward to it.
