Is there a certain age/time when sleeping in the same bed as a child is inappropriate?
I have a good friend who has been divorced a few years, and has 2 girls, ages 8 and 3. Her ex shares a king size bed with the girls when he has his visitation.
Personally, I do not think I would be comfortable with my ex sharing a bed with our 4yr old daughter, but he has a history of sexual addiction, so I guess that makes it different.
Interested to see replies!

I don't see a problem with a child snuggling into bed with the parents if he/she is scared, had a nightmare, feels sick etc. but it's important that the child has their own bed to go back to. My kids have both crawled in with me at any age right into their teens but they've never assumed that my bed is also their bed.
Good question! I thought it would be easier to answer than it actually was as I started answering.
