The way the Textile Industry Convinced Everyone That Nudity is Poor

While most folks do not think about the historical political impact of the clothing they wear, textiles and the textile industry has in fact had a great impact on societies around the globe, and still do now. It must be recalled that prior to the European Renaissance and Industrial Revolution, the majority of Earth’s human population was (and still is) focused about the equator in tropical and semi tropical regions.
Desert home individuals also traditionally needed clothing for protection from overexposure to the harmful ultraviolet rays of sunlight. In a few of these societies handcraft textiles and loom woven fabrics became a valued artwork, benefiting wealthy weavers and merchant classes. Folks also wore garments to indicate their socio-economic standing, and spiritual offices.
However, for most individuals around the globe, outside of small elite aristocracies, wealthy merchant classes, the religious establishment, and societies heavily determined by handcraft cloth and merchant guilds, garments was mostly worn for practical functional functions, and not required when impractical, like for swimming, or for working in hot humid conditions.
Cloth body concealment was not ascribed any moral measurement as symbolic of modesty or innocence. The nude human body was associated with poverty at worst, honesty and purity at best, and was, at some time, not directly related to human sexuality by the majority of Earth’s folks.
slaves – colonization, nudity, clothes and the textile industry
Subsequently, in 1750 the textile mill was invented in England. This created tremendous wealth for the owners of textile mills, and agricultural land barons that supplied cotton, wool, and other raw materials to be woven into textile fabrics for clothing (also as for rope, ship sails, construction materials and other uses).
As clothes was the leading gain creating end use of the textile mill owners products, it became imperative for his or her local inhabitants to be indoctrinated with the “demand” for fabric body concealment whatsoever times to maintain continuous gains. solidified the positions of the aristocracy by direct transfer of wealth in the masses via textile clothes purchases, by designating specific clothing fashions as highly expensive and only to be worn by aristocrats, and by designating many different clothes fashions for each sex, age, class, and commerce, region, activity, and sect, thereby reinforcing divisions within the general public, making them more readily subdivided and controlled.
Once the masses accepted the practice of continuous material body concealment (frequently indoctrinated though the church, the best proponent of new notions accessible to the aristocracy at that time) the abundance of the textile makers was insured for generations.
Textile producers and religious organizations in Asia had long follow ed the same path to continuous profits and authoritarian hierarchical control within their own regions and faiths too.
As the technology of the industrial revolution progressed it became possible for the textile manufacturing companies to provide more clothing than was demanded by local people, and the makers were so compelled to seek elsewhere to market their products.
So colonial growth was significantly quickened. The European aristocracy sought new markets for its products (mostly cloths, in addition to alcoholic beverages, and weapons), cheap labor, and new environmental resource lands to make its essential raw materials (primarily cotton and wool).
Governments sought expansion in their international influence, tax base, and increase of these national wealth. Governments also sought to enforce cloth body concealment as a question of “law” and social “order” as the practice became standard within their own people and profitable elsewhere within their colonies. Sufficiently indoctrinated populations themselves presumed the belief that they were made more pious, moral, modest, adequate, and pure through the practice of fabric body concealment.
On the other hand, the many unkind atrocities performed by the European church during the middle ages (largely rooting out native traditional holistic counselors, scientific knowledge bearers, and healing practitioners, many of which were women), the witch trials of Salem Massachusetts, the international slave trade, two world wars, countless big and small scale military battles, and millions of more recent violent criminal psychopathic acts tells quite another history.
Police officer “Smokey” Buchanan quantifies swimsuit of Betty Fringle on Palm Beach, to see that its length matches swimsuit regulations – 1925
Today there are other means than authoritarian hierarchical associations for textile manufacturers to indoctrinate their pervasive bogus message of the requirement of fabric body concealment all the time.
Magazines captivate minds with shiny lively brilliant images and engaging stories. Papers expound the stories mass media consensus determines to be most rewarding. The net engages and interacts with the thoughts of its users. Advertising more and invades every facet of our daily life.
Meanwhile girls are assaulted by various types of violence, kids are harassed to the point of suicide, people starve themselves to death out of hate for and dissatisfaction with their bodies, and individuals are routinely ostracized, bullied, assaulted, raped, and killed for what they decide to wear.
Actually, clothes freedom (the ability of any individual to wear or not wear whatever they need without negative repercussions or consequences) can be a reasonable index of freedom in general within a given society.
From what I ‘ve seen in my travels abroad, liberty and self determination often abound in the societies where clothes independence exists. In the societies where clothing independence is refused, authoritarian hierarchy prevails and other personal liberties will also be in danger.

Angela Shelton: Naturist Kid and Sexual Abuse on the Ricki Lake Show

Guest Site Angela Shelton by: Paulette LaRoche
She was there discussing her 2004 documentary Searching For Angela Shelton. The movie’s primary subject is sexual abuse, inspired by her own abuse as a child, supposedly from her dad and step mother.
She starts her story on the Ricki show, and among the first things she says is, (this isn’t verbatim, by the way, but close enough.) We were that regular, perfect family with the white picket fence and we also went to nudist resorts.
Angela continues with her story, and I never heard nudist resorts mentioned again. I even found another article that says her father told her, I made stupid mistakes about the naturist colony and the running around with your clothing off
Nevertheless, despite the fact that there was never any link expressly made between naturismand molestation, her chance comment in her introduction heavily indicated that there is a definite one.
Angela Shelton, actress who grew up as a nudist
I was so mad after I heard Angela say that to Ricki! I believed it was totally irresponsible and misleading. As if ALL kids who go to nudist resorts are automatic targets of sexual abuse. There is a difference between a family-friendly nudist resort and an orgy!
One is a spot where adults go to have sex. The other is a spot for people of ages to enjoy leisurely actions while unclothed. A very misguided idea is that nudity is purely sexual. When a little child tears off his / her diaper and exclaims, I am nakey, it’s never for any sexual goal. It’s because it’s natural. They haven’t been educated that it is bad or black to be naked. I think this healthy attitude shouldn’t be stomped on. That is part of what leads to body shame and phobia.
What Angela Shelton has done to help others, and to get closure for herself, is commendable indeed. I also can understand how her private viewpoints of nudism and naturist resorts would be a negative one. Especially if it were directly linked to her mistreatment.
But to imply that the two are automatically linked is what I have an issue with. A child isn’t any more likely to be abused naked than they are clothed. Of all the terrible stories I Have heard in the news about similar occurrences, I’ve never heard one talking about naturism.
and follow was so area on: Of course! But that is because I’m a mom, not because my child is nude. In the words of every Family Feud contestant ever: Good Response!

New Way Of Naturism By the Young Naturists

Our new way of nudism – We would like to announce some changes to our FKK members and followers. When you are likely well aware, we (Felicity Jones and Jordan) have been investing every waking second of the day as well as every last penny we now have in creating this wonderful nudist community of amazing folks.
We have been perceived as the black sheep of the nudist movement virtually from day one and while there have already been many individuals who have done whatever they could to squash our efforts, we’re still here. We’d expected the naturist movement in addition to nudist companies would welcome this new mainstream strategy but we did underestimate just how un-evolved the movement was and still is.
A New Way Of Nudism at FKK
A New Approach To Nudism at FKK – Love, Independence, Endorsement!
The core problems, that we’re continuously confronted with, are that nudist leaders and company owners:
Don’t comprehend how the internet functions
Do not believe in spending any cash to bring new business
Are scared of the “outsiders”
Are closed minded when it comes to initiation
Don’t take constructive criticism well
Can not convey efficiently and don’t respond rapidly
Are not open-minded enough for the current way individuals believe
Are uncooperative and extremely close
Lack the abilities and openness to learn how exactly to reach more folks
Are not willing to actively support other businesses and collaborate
Since we only can not compel folks to transform, we feel it is time for us to accept the facts. Till now, everything we’ve done was geared toward bringing more focus to everyone. We’re sad that here, in the U.S., the main nudist organizations and companies aren’t willing to truly listen and evolve the naturist movement. We will continue to work with naturist clubs and organizations, but we realize that it’s not up to us to ensure their survival. You’ll find reasons why organizations will not be doing well and why clubs are seeing a decreasing number of members (especially younger ones). But we can not force folks to think long term, and we now understand that we should not even attempt.
So with that in mind, we have decided to do what exactly is best for us: we will be scaling down our operation. Over / weeks we’ll begin to execute our new way of nudism and FKK.
Here are a few of the things you are able to expect to see happen:
Due to the overwhelming quantity of general emails that we get, we are going to now be responding to the majority of them once a week. We will also be publishing content less often.
We will not be doing mainly pro bono work for nudism connected companies. If you want us to help, then we ask that you place value on our time. Up to now, we have been spending our personal savings to drive out and talk with individuals. Most resorts and clubs still charged us day fees even though we were there to help them. We also have done work for people / companies at no cost.
The good thing about working with us is that FKK understands this niche market and we curently have a large follow ing and existence. We even can optimize pay per click campaigns (for Google) so that companies will end up paying far less per click while reaching a greater advertising placement. And the list goes on and on.
While our rates are a fraction of what it would cost in “external world,” we still have to manage to make something. So we ask that you be understanding and respectful of our needs, should you choose to work with us.
We’ve been getting a tremendous amount of e-mails mostly from the U.S., Canada, Australia and England. Folks actually desire to FKK to do things in their area. This has formerly been reached by creating chapters in different places. Chapter leaders were responsible for blogging, organizing events consistently and keeping various social media. The idea was actually to create self-sustaining groups that could generate their own funds and supply a supply of income for whoever was in charge.
Aside from NY / NJ, we haven’t found people who are capable and / or willing to invest the time and energy needed to educate a large following.
So, we are creating a second tier – the “FKK associate group.” The groups will be composed of one primary individual who’ll be the group’s supervisor. The groups will basically be as active or inactive as the leader wants it to be.
Nudist Groups are expected to abide by and apply the regulations and fashion of actions both on-line and offline.
Naturist Groups will receive support from FKK in these manners:
Access to the FKK site for publishing content – this is crucial to widening the exposure of any group.
Access to the FKK e-mail newsletters – To educate individuals of what they are doing.
FKK will use our social networks to establish the group – we will add individuals that we understand from that place and announce the creation of the new group online.
Nudist Groups are expected to:
Act according to the mode of conduct which is summarized on the FKK site
Respond to FKK when we contact them
Tell FKK promptly of any issues that appear
Remove any people who misbehave
We’ll shortly begin to close down a number of our other chapters, but that does not mean that we’re no further present. It merely means that we aren’t responsible for creating the real community nor will we be actively and aggressively seeking to develop the group’s membership and subsequent. That’s up to every single group to determine.
Take note that FKK is a structured movement. We do have checks and balances and folks can not just do whatever they wish whenever they feel like it. The most precious asset we have is our reputation, which is something we’re not and WOn’t be willing to venture. We haven’t any issue with closing down any group anytime or revoking some of the privileges if we believe that it is necessary.
As always we welcome your ideas in the comments section below.

Evolvefest Yoga Festival and Naturist Hippies

Evolvefest – This past weekend Jordan and I went to a religious yoga and music festival in Phillipsburg, NJ called Evolvefest. It was such a fantastic time!
We got there early afternoon and walked around to scope out the scene. It took place on the substantial Warren County Fairgrounds so there was plenty of space and green grass to dancing, play and practice yoga on.
There were for workshops, yoga, and concerts, a huge booth for children actions and a line of sellers selling fair trade clothes, gemstones, books, purses, jewelry, and spiritual accouterments like dried white sage. There were also a couple of trendy neon artwork sculptures and glowing starry ornamentation scattered throughout.
Neon Art Sculpture at Evolvefest
There was an almost continuous odor of burning incense or white sage. Discovering and yogis, it was mainly young folks in their 20’s or late teens. A lot of slim young men with dreads, and girls in billowing pants or skirts and bando tops in Earthy colours.
I seen lots of the guys were shirtless, and I found myself wishing we were in NY so I could go topfree also. Does it make any sense to give women this simple right in one state and not another? Not to me. click there were so friendly and open also. If you got someone’s eye they’d actually maintain eye contact and smile. It was refreshing.
The program was packed with a variety of workshops, yoga, hula hooping lessons, religious ceremonies, crafts, and more. I started off with a rejuvenating yoga jam session. This is a free form yoga dance with a couple loose poses, after which you move your body and limbs in whatever way feels good.
Subsequently the band took over to lead us in a chant meant for healing. We all sang together and directed the healing sound to friends, family, everyone we had ever met, and eventually the complete world. The chant leader said sound goes some 700 miles, and so I hope the great energy went and did some great!
After this we got up to head to another workshop about holistic, healthy living. , Dalien of 13 Hands, was quite animated and humorous.
The talk was a little lengthy, but amusing. He’d us get up to do a few energizing yoga poses together. At the end we were invited to relax and close our eyes as he played a scintillating concert of tune, hang drums and flute.
Evolvefest Meditation in Gateway of Ascension Service
By then it was dinnertime so we went to have a look at the two outdoor food stands. Each one had healthful vegetarian choices like green juice and hummus veggie wraps. I had the portobello mushroom sandwich, that was surprisingly very flavorful, and Jordan had a grilled cheese.
There was a “Conscious Culture” workshop I wanted to attend, but when we couldn’t find that we ended up at the “Gateway of Ascension Service” at a grassy area called Healing Village.
It started off with the minister playing crystal bowls, reverberating hollow notes into the air. spoke of a dream vision she had of everyone’s third eye unexpectedly opening. We did a guided meditation, picturing different colour lights going through our chakras. She told us by walking through the “gateway” we were consenting to participate in a fresh Earth and live in harmony with each other. One by one we walked through a shimmering gateway lit up and lined with volunteers playing lead crystal bowls.
Greeting view at another end were “angels” that warmly embraced each one of us and whispered supporting messages, like “you’ve a divine purpose in this world.” Frankly I didn’t have any magic awakening, but it was a new, warm and calming experience nonetheless.
Playing lead crystal bowls at Evolvefest
The concerts had been going on throughout the day, but we did not go over to see one until late that night. A group called Bad Buka was jamming extremely on stage and had the crowd jumping and dancing. We caught a couple of minutes of it and then headed out.
Attending this event got us thinking about hippies. “Happy Educated People Pursuing Unlimited Enlightenment.” at that festival were a lot like modern day hippies, and we’d imagine 20-30% of the Evolvefest crowd would be interested in what we do.
(We hope to get more involved next time if we can!) The kinds of workshops and activities really reminded me a lot of the Northeast Natural Festival I attended last year.
What exactly do you think, are we FKK’ers like modern-day hippies? Continuing what finished in the 60s / 70s? Could not naturism and body acceptance be part of “the new awareness” ? And Body Image Blogs By Felicity Jones For – Young Naturists And Nudists America FKK

The American Sunbathing Association (A.S.A.), prospered during the next eight

After the Second World War nudism slowly began to take hold again, reemerging as a

executive of the A.S.A. By now, follow , Boone monopolized the entire nudist movement.
As noted by , other organizations comprised: The

The subject of Social Nudism creates many differing standpoints. Some individuals locate

when referring to people choosing to engage in this lifestyle.
Conduct as moral, ethical, and socially appropriate, insisting that social nudism serves to
enhance total well being. Where did these beliefs originate, and why do they last?
Much of what forms our societies and laws stems from religious views. Although does not focus on the practices, theories, or beliefs of one specific religion, it
does recognize the basis of religion as being a major contributor to contemporary perspectives
on nudism.
During early formative years of religious teachings, dominant perspectives in Greek and

known as Gnosticism, and represented a negative view of what God had thought. states

Remorse and shame, upon human beings. It was not until Adam and Eve sinned that shame

What effect does shame have on us? Many psychologists believe that shame is the

addictions. According to Pastor Ted Roberts “Shame is a feeling of profound abasement that
convinces me there is something fundamentally wrong with me …and that’s a killer. “


Hartman Fithian & Johnson, noted in their publication, Naturist Society, that many religious leaders

are responsible for associating shame, with nudity and sin. For example, the continuous
reminder that premarital sex and masturbation are wrong, and so sinful, implies that
these acts are shameful. Girls, as opposed to men, are more readily criticized for
Participating in sex before marriage and thus more prone to feelings of shame. Yet

How to Introduce a Buddy to Naturism

Are you single and find it difficult to attend naturist resorts by yourself?

Maybe you are single, but you are not alone. Many others face the exact same situation.

How Do You Encourage Someone to Consider Attempting Naturism?

Due to the wholesomeness of the principles, naturism is definitely a social, strongly family-oriented task.

So Canada’s 40 naturist resorts and many of those throughout the world, plan the majority of their activities for couples and families with kids.

Resort owners consider it important to help keep the numbers of women and men as identical as you possibly can to ensure everyone feels comfortable. As a consequence, most resorts restrict the amount of single men permitted to attend; a few clubs take no single men unless they bring an associate of the other gender.

Even outside naturist groups, single men in their 20s start to feel isolated and left out of actions as their friends marry and have kids. Most people don’t expect to remain single forever, but it does occur. A person can also become single again at other intervals in your lifetime, due to choice or situation.

We assure you we know how hard it’s, notably for some shy or introverted individuals, to make friends, let alone bring them to a naturist setting. However, it can be achieved and will be done.

More single men than single women initially attempt to engage in naturism. You’ll find various reasons because of this.

1. Guys are far more prepared to try things on their own; girls have a tendency to need to do things with other girlfriends and could feel reluctant to suggest trying naturism.

2. Financing. The common woman’s wages are less than those of the average guy. Many women are not able to manage an automobile to go to your naturist resort. A single mother’s income is often limited and could prevent her and her children from participating.

3. Men tend to be the dominant sex so if your marriage breaks up, it’s probably the man who keeps the naturist membership. This, sadly, represents the society we live in, rather than naturist values.

4. Marketing, movie and televisions portrayals of girls frequently make them feel inferior should they would not have a supermodel’s body; they may dread comparison with other women.

5. There could be a few other motives, including a dislike of roughing it.

On the other hand, while girls will be the sex most unwilling to try naturism initially, they are also the most passionate sex after they have experienced it.

Nevertheless, getting a buddy who might have an interest in naturism is just as hard for girls as it’s for guys.

Natural Nudity is Healthy

Naturism is wholesome, healthful and never linked to sexual ideas or activity. Non-naturists frequently tend not to understand this because movies, television, music and advertisements so often depict nudity and sex as exactly the same. Pornography in addition has given nudity a bad name.

A naturist girl’s new boyfriend might not believe that, when she goes to some nudist resort, men who see her nakedness do not accost her. He can become envious and greatly troubled by this.

On the other hand, a naturist man’s new girlfriend may be suspicious of his motives and may be skeptical of giving naturism a try.

Much like the majority of difficulties, an effective way to resolve it’s through respectful communication. You and the buddy you’d like to attract to naturism must have confidence and mutual trust in each other. People should be assured, not coerced, so be fair — deception always backfires.

1. Tell the buddy of an excellent place to really go to where you’d like to spend time with him or her.

2. Stress the positive details of the club — the family setting, the rules of behaviour making it a place where people feel safe, the facilities, actions and so forth.

3. When you have a buddy’s interest and he/she understands this is a place where people act with respect towards one another, be sure you mention the insufficient bathing suits. Describe that nudists have the common sense to know when and where it’s suitable to be bare.

4. Help it become clear to the friend that he/she isn’t obligated to be bare on the first visit at most resorts. (There are exceptions, so phone ahead to assess; if nudity is mandatory, ensure you say so.)

5. Call the resort in advance and advise the owner you will end up bringing someone who’s a rookie to naturism. Resort owners are very happy to help to make your friend feel welcome on his or her initial visit.

Sometimes naturist friends as well as acquaintances can be of help prior to the initial visit. Matching a number of these to see the things they are like, before visiting the club, may help your friend break the ice.

If he/she is hesitant to examine the publications or a naturist video in your company, don’t push it. Propose he or she take them and look them over alone. Do not drive an instant decision. It takes more time for many people to decide than for others.

view of all, use your common sense plus some sensitivity in bringing up the issue. Human beings all respond differently to various themes, so use your judgment on what sort of fabric to give anyone to have a look at. Things expressing the family setting will often make people feel at ease the most, but this is a judgment call on how best to approach the topic with each buddy.

Ultimately, most of the alternative rests with you.

Accept your friend’s decision if he or she does not desire to participate. Possibly another buddy will probably be interested. In the end, there are about 500,000 naturists in Canada already!

Meanwhile, there actually is much empathy for your position. You’re not the only person attempting to cope with this particular problem.

Admiration Others; Get Involved

When you do attend a naturist resort alone, people will take you more readily in case you have concern for others. Others likely is not going to value it in case you employ meeting someone new as an opportunity for a pickup.

Sometimes a person may be alone because he or she is timid and would welcome someone to speak to or play tennis with. Other times, individuals may simply prefer to relish quiet time to themselves read ing a novel under a shady tree. So instead, get to know the other individual as a close friend or admiration that man’s privacy if she or he wants to be by him or herself.

Also, individuals accept single individuals more easily when they attempt to be active in almost any naturist organizations they do join. You can find all kinds of volunteer activities you are able to help with. Write the FCN to offer your help and discover whatever you are able to do, or offer to help the resort owners arrange an occasion.

If the resort isn’t accepting more single males at this time and turns you away, do not become hostile or defensive. It won’t make it easier for folks to approve you next time.

Having too many men will drive women members away.

Instead, take the positive strategy. Do what you can to locate a pal of the other gender to bring, and do get involved when you attend.

I mean, let’s be frank. How is that adolescent son or daughter supposed to realize that mom and dad who have never done anything insane before, and may even go to church every Sunday, are now jumping in a hot tub with a bunch of naked people and it’s not supposed to be an orgy? Without any supporting circumstance or common expertise, the kid’s hormones and awareness of propriety inherited from his pre-naturist parents, merely protest the notion. We believe we’re describing matters one way in our head, like the butch soldier. But the language simply is not there, particularly when it has a history of quite distinct meaning.

To a non-naturist friend or relative, naked = sex. Period.
The nudie has little or no precise language to convey her new experience, and the non-nudie does not have any experience base from which to interpret the obscure language. Metaphorically speaking we may believe we’re saying schwIl but we’re actually saying schwul when we insist to the textile, that naturism is non-sexual nudity. Then we wonder why the non-nudist frowns, addicts, furrows his brow, or bursts out in laughter. It’s actually not even the correct area to begin the dialog.
OK fellow nudies, can’t we just declare it? We now have a cross-cultural communication dilemma of major proportions. Our language, when it comes to sexology, is fairly weak.
They have 13 words for snow in a highly developed culture of snow. Sex is a bit more complex than snow, so we can do better than to insist that being nude is somehow absolutely void of sexuality.
On the other hand, most fabrics would consider exposure of their naked body to anyone other than their spouse, either underhanded seduction, or some sort of sexual abuse. Thus, is not it kind of strange that we insist so strongly that our social nudity is nonsexual? All things considered, it is not the impersonal parts of our bodies, like our elbows, fingers, or toes that evoke such powerful emotions. NO! It’s expressly our exposed sexuality that brings out such reactions.
I think if we expect to win the battles of today to grow naturism it’s important to be honest with ourselves, and to comprehend where many of the cloths we’re trying to reach may be coming from. And it won’t do to insist that schwul isn’t schwIl non-naturists don’t get the difference!
In view of the preceding, sex-positive is a fantastic beginning at developing a whole new, fuller, richer terminology encompassing naturism and sexuality. Let’s stop faking naturism has nothing regarding sexuality in the non-nudist head it does, and we have to start there. Moreover, for us naturists, sex-positive is a means to begin being more confident about our own sexuality and hence more genuine with the cloth world.
This in turn challenges us into a deeper comprehension of our naked experiences and our sexuality, and how we may associate them metaphorically to similar fabric encounters in ways which makes the non-naturist need to contemplate naturism as a real option. Perhaps we should consider this just because many cloths are searching for a means to bring balance, significance, and fulfillment to their sexuality.
And so click must take a deeper look inside and truly ask, is our naturism as nonsexual as we appear to say to the non-naturist? What are we are afraid of, that keeps us from confronting sexuality in naturism? Does the textile world see something that we don’t desire to see?
All of this is why we want at least some change in our understanding, our expertise, and our development of new language as we face changing sexuality within textile culture and naturism. Sex-positive. read is the first step in dealing with these changes, and hopefully in reaching many new people, in order that they too may experience the freedom and delight that we have experienced.
In this blog we have considered that a substantial issue in reaching the textile world is that there surely is a cross-cultural communication difference between our world and theirs. There exists too little common language and expertise to bridge this difference or deal with altering sexuality.

Fresh year is traditionally a time for reflection and the making of resolutions.

Individuals are more significant than anything else in all our lives, and our families
and pals absolutely the most significant. It appears natural they should have an
important part in the work of any photographer. For me they have been the
starting point for an exploration of photography that has led me outside in many and

boys who all like sleepovers). can make the appropriate substitutes for
boys: favourite car or truck instead of stuffed animal or Barbie doll, prizes and
Send off goodies proper for boys, etc. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the
same-except you may get less sleep if the guests are lads, as they often stay
up after and likely will eat more munchies. You may also want to read the
article we ran on November, 1998 on Super Sleep Overs.
A great slumber party starts with good preparation. Through the years, our kids
have had several parties so here’s what we’ve learned to do (and not do). First
decide how many guests and then check to make certain there’s enough floor space
for that many sleeping bags and paraphernalia. Do not invite too many guests;
usually four or five friends who get along together.
Not all pre-teens are ready for slumber parties. It’s better to check with
parents first to see if the child has spent the night away from their parents,
saving you a phone call to the parents in the middle of the night and probable
embarrassment of the child. Also check to see if any child has any unique
health needs such as diabetes and make sure you’re conscious of any medications and
insulin shots which is needed. Figure out if the kid gives their own
injection or will need more than just your observance. Also find out if there
are any food allergies. Is the child a vegetarian?
The invitations should include a list of what the child will be to bring-sleeping
bag, pillow, pajamas, robe, slippers, a stuffed animal or their favourite Barbie,
personal items, and a flashlight (have a supply of extra batteries on hand). Be
sure to include the pick up time for the next morning. Don’t hand out the
invitations in front of girls that are not being invited to the party.
Remove from the party place, removing all breakable items. Then
transform your sleeping space into a party place. Attach several brightly colored
streamers to the ceiling in the center of the region, then stretch the streamers
out to the side, twisting as you go, for form a teepee shape. Create a
Cozy area to lounge and discuss by piling pillows in all shapes, sizes, and
colors from around the house into a enormous squishy mound. Place a nightlight in the
bathroom and keep hallways lit.

child ahead of time just how much they may eat. Also ask the parents of any
other child with diabetes to instruct their child. Great varieties are miniature,
quartered sandwiches, mini-bagels spread with low fat cream cheese, cherry
tomatoes, baby carrots, popcorn, pretzels, small plastic bottles of springtime
water, etc.
