Q & A

I can’t get my 6 yr old out of my bed.  I love her to death and love cuddling with her but I know she needs to feel independant.  How do I get her out?  Not so sure that I really mind that she cuddles with me, tho!

    • I do everytime!  She does stay in her bed a lot but she is always waking up around 3 or 4 am and jumping in bed with me.

    • My daughter slept with me most nights and when she was 11 she decided she was too old to anymore.  And I missed having her there, but recognized her need to become more independent.  If you really don’t want her in bed with you, my suggestion is that you lock your door at night.  At first it will be hell as she cries and bangs against your door, but she will eventually give up.

    • Thanks ladies, I hope these work and I know the lock your door tip seems cruel but my baby’s pediatrician once told me to do the same thing because he was waking up every two hours.  It was mortified but it did work.  I ended up crying too, but that was 16 yrs ago.  LOL

    • Think about when your little girl is grown up and doesn't need to snuggle with you anymore because she's busy with her friends and building her own life. Then when you turn at 3 a.m. you don't find her there, think about that. They're never too old to snuggle into your bed... that's my opinion. Blessings.
