I let my daughter sleep with me and after she has gotten sleep I transfer her to her grandmother. I had difficulty moving on my bed too when I was a kid. I think I sleep with my mother even I am in elementary at that time. When I moved on my own room and been, I always watch the windows and so afraid of the images I see on the shadow. But I get used to it as time goes by. It's a matter of practice.

I think it will cause problems later on. My mother did the same thing with me and when it came time for me to sleep in my own bed it was very traumatizing for me. She needs to stop it now before it gets too bad. Thats why I made sure not to let my kids sleep in our bed all the time because I know how hard it will be when it comes time for them to sleep in their own beds!

My son is three, has slept with me every night since the day he was born. My sister says she was told that if you let them sleep with you in your hospital bed after they are born then they won't sleep in their own bed. Oops, wish I'd known that then. I figure when he's ready he will stop sleeping with me, and I hope it's soon since he's a big kid and hogs the bed.
