I'm curious b/c I don't even remember my mom tucking me in beyond 9 years old or so. Just curious how everyone else feels about this and when you think it's appropriate to just kiss the kids goodnight and send them to bed on their own.Answer Question
As long as my kids let me I'm going to be doing it. :) My kids are 7 and 6 and with my 7 year old it has involved into a little bit of alone time where he can ask me things. This is how often I found out what was going on at school. He would be settle in and say so and so, at school, said this today, what does it mean?
Now I will say at times he does it to "stay" up, but other times he just really wants to know something, and for whatever reason, he's more comfortable sharing at bed time when I go in to say good-night and tuck him in.
Of course as they get older I won't be tucking them in, but I always plan on at least popping my head in and saying good night and give them a kiss (if they let me). Perhaps, it will be at that moment they'll be able to share with me what is going on with them.... After all when you have multiple kids and busy life it can be hard to get that moment. :)
That's just my take on it.
