  • Yes, Julita (age 6) has her own room (always has) and no, she has never experienced any problems sleeping by herself with the exception of the first few weeks after her Dad was killed.

  • I have one 5 yo son. He has his own room, but spends a lot of time crawling into mommy's bed. I think it is because at his dad's house he shares a room with his dad's girlfriend's son. He doesn't like to be alone. Some nights he is fine and some nights he would rather be with me.

  • I only have one child, and yes, he has his own room. He doesn't have a hard time sleeping in there alone, but he's only 14 months.

  • I have only one child and we joke (but it is true) that he has his own wing in the house. He has his bedroom, playroom/TV room and his own bath. He has never had problems sleeping by himself. We have always had snuggle time where dad or I would snuggle with him and talk about his day before putting him to sleep and on the weekends he knew that he could come and crawl into bed in the morning to snuggle with us there too. However, at 11 now our snuggle times are now snuggles on the couch.
