Will allowing my almost 2 year old to sleep in my room and sometimes my bed make him a pervert?

My mom tells me that if I don't put my son into a bedroom of his own he will grow up to be a pervert. He sleeps in his toddler bed sometimes and sometimes he shares a bed with Daddy and I.

  • So all the poorer countries must have perverts running around all over since most of them live with 10 people in a one room hut! Seriously do a little research on cosleeping and give it to her and keep doing what you are doing. y son is 4 and m daughter is 2 and the both still sleep in our room with their crib and toddler bed right beside our beds and often climb into ours with us in the middle of the night. My aunts daughter was about 8 when she left her parents room of her own accord and she is now an adult and in no way a pervert!

  • That's ridiculous. No, he's not going to be a pervert. If anything it might help him be closer to women and more sensitive.

  • He won't be a pervert! Neither of my boys were good sleepers, but they slept like rocks when they slept with us. We chose sleep for everyone! My boys are non 11 and 8.

    My sisters and I slept with our Mom, she was a single parent...there isn't a pervert among us! My SIL and BIL did the co-sleeping thing as well, there kids are almost grown..no perves there either.

    Choose sleep!

  • NO! That has got to be the one of ther most incredibly strange things i have ever heard. both my boys co-slept till age 3 and they are now 8 and 11 and not perverts, they are actually very modest and respectful of privacy. if my 5 y/o daughter comes out of her room in just underwear they turn their backs to her and tell her to go back in her room and get dressed.

    how in the world does cosleeping turn people into perverts?

  • That's crazyness. Your child won't be a pervert if they sleep in your bed. If anything, it helps you bond with your child better.
