Most of my childhood family vacations were camping trips. But for the ones that involved hotels or relatives houses, I can recall sleeping on the floor many, MANY times! *Gasp* I know, it’s shocking isn’t it?!?! Even more shocking is that despite sleeping on the floor, I am just fine (by my standards anyways).
It amazes me today how many parents say that their kids can not sleep on the floor, under any circumstance. Instead, many parents insist that their kids need a bed of their own to sleep in. I just don’t get it. Kids are resilient, it WILL be okay if they sleep on the floor from time to time. And let’s be honest, a lot of kids could benefit from the humbling experience of being demoted to the floor.
Don’t even get me started about parents who say that brothers and sisters can’t share a bed during family trips . . .
How do you feel about your kid sleeping on the floor? Or did you have to sleep on the floor when you were a kid?
