Son still sleeps in my bed!

I am a single mother of 3. 4 year old twin girls and a 17 year old son. I started him off sleeping in my bed when he was a baby and he never left! It's so annoying because I can't even bring a date home because he's sleeping in there. But, yet he can kick me out of there when he's got a girl over. It's really starting to make me mad. I want my bed back! He has his own room and his own bed, but if I send him in there to go to sleep he throws a fit! And I am in no way a fan of the cry it out method, so I end up letting him back in. What do I do?

  • Oh, please say this is a joke, b/c I am laughing my ass off. You don't believe in letting your 17 YEAR old cry it out? Why is he crying to begin with? Why do you let him have a girl in your HOUSE, much less your bed? Oh, there are so many problems with this. You need some serious therapy, and so does your son. I'm sorry, but really. If this is for real, you need to seek some real help.

  • I agree with tropicalmama, this is ridiculous if he's 17. First you should never have started him out in your bed, what's wrong with children being put in their own room/bed from birth! Really!

  • I think it all goes back to how I breastfed him until he was 8. So it was easier to comfort him when he woke in the night, rather than get up and get him. He didn't start sleeping through the night until he was close to 9. I guess it just gives me comfort as well, since he still likes the snuggle.
