  • Just let him sleep on the couch or floor as long as he isn't in anyone's way. It is not a big deal. I sleep on my couch and my 14 yr old likes to sleep on the floor. It's really not a big deal at all. He will go back to his bed when he is ready.

  • I wouldn't worry about it. You have to pick your battles and do what works for your family. If he wants to sleep on the floor, let him sleep on the floor. If some CM sanctimommy has a problem with it, that's on her.

  • My son slept on the floor for months when he was afraid of being in his room. Dr friend has told us that the floor is actually good for your back. Don't worry.

  • my 2 year old LOVES to sleep on the floor... she'll fall asleep in her bed then eventually move to the floor,.. and no it's not her falling out... i don't worry as long as she's getting her rest, it's not going to hurt her.
