At this age, children are still very dependent on their parents and may feel anxious or frightened when separated from them, especially in an unfamiliar environment.
Additionally, young children have a limited ability to communicate their needs and may struggle to express themselves or seek help if they are uncomfortable or distressed.
It’s important to prioritize your child’s safety, comfort, and emotional well-being when considering sleepovers. While some children may be ready for sleepovers at an earlier age, most children are not developmentally ready for overnight visits until they are at least 5 or 6 years old.
If you do choose to have a sleepover with a 2-year-old, make sure that the child is familiar with the host family, that you have a plan for how to handle any issues that may arise, and that you are able to respond promptly if the child becomes upset or distressed.
