How do I get them to sleep in there own beds?

I have 2 boys ages 8 & 10, they have always sleep in the same bed. I decided they were getting to old for this so they now have bunk beds, I put them to bed in their own individual bed however when I wake either the 8 yr old is in the 10 yr olds bed or the 10 yr old is in the 8 yr olds bed... My DH says leave them alone.

  • I would leave them alone, they will probably work it out on their own when the 10 year old gets tired of it

  • Eventually, they wanted to. No effort or planning involved.

    Of course, when one is sleeping over at the other's house, even now, they share a bed 'cause it's that or the couch.

  • As long as their going to bed on time, and not making a fuss I don't see a problem with it..

  • I didn't even get my own bed until I was 14 and didn't care one way or the other. It's a bit of a non-issue now. Enjoy the fact that at 8 and 10 they are not trying to kill each other! Lol...

  • I'd leave them to their closeness until they decide to stop it. What a nice bond they have!
