  • No...just because they will use that to their advantage and fake sick when they want your attention or just don't feel like sleeping alone.

  • I don't. My bed isn't big enough, for one (it's a twin bed) and, two, I don't like sharing my bed. My kids have never asked to come in my bed when they are sick.
    My husband would, though. He just gives in and lets them sleep with him because he doesn't want to deal with putting them back to bed (notice they ask him and not me because I don't give in). Mostly it's our 3yo and it's not always because she's sick. She fakes all sorts of stuff to sleep on the couch with Daddy. Very rarely does she come to me and that's usually because Daddy said no.

  • Yes. I would. But then I'd let my 5 year old sleep with me even if s/he WASN'T sick.
