7 year old boy sleeping in my bed after divorce ... is it ok?
Hi all, I need some help calibrating what's appropriate. I have an only child, one son. His dad and I split up last year, when he was 6. I have him 50 percent time. Since we split up, he's been sleeping with me in my king-sized bed on the nights he is with me. When his dad and I were together, he would only occasionally sleep with us, usually on the weekends. I value the extra closeness since I'm only with him half the time, and he finds it comforting. We read and snuggle a bit, and then he falls asleep. At his dad's, he sleeps in his own bed. Our split was amicable, and our son is doing well. My question is whether I should start encouraging him back into his own bed, or let this continue a bit longer. We would both miss it, but I don't want to be doing something that may not good for him. Anyone have any experience with something similar? Thanks!
