Re: How long did you co-sleep for?

maybe there are other issues, you don't know the child or family and that little "gem" is not good a therapist to say to use to "prove her point"

And often teens/young adults DO co-sleep, just with boyfriend/girlfriends vs parents, they crave closeness, I wonder why?

My best childhood memories are waking up to my brothers smiling little face, waking our parents up, and then just hanging out, talking, and slowly waking up.
So sweet!

I think co-sleeping is similar to breastfeeding, some kids will stop sooner than others, and you can't force an older child to do either if they don't want to.

If it's working for you and the child it's the best choice for your family!

tell the therapist were to stick that thumb
IHA: books, fabric, lots of new baby clothes, toys
ISO: Amazon codes, Paypal or Gift Cards
