My daughter and son are less then a year apart 9 yrs and 8 yrs both kids have been very clingy, I had spoken to their doctor and had them speak to their doctor alone. My son and daughter want me to sleep in their room or my bed. I don't remember being clingy like this at their ages, the doctor says they will grow out of this but I am wondering if anyone else who has had kids 8/9 if this is normal? Or is it because I am pretty affectionate to my kids/husband? My daughter doesn't seem stressed out but both kids seem happiest when I do let them fall asleep next to me, its not like they can't sleep alone last year the kids had bunk beds and they would sleep together but that has stopped since I moved my daughters bed in her own room.they both are snuggly kids who like to cuddle with mom. I just dont know if this is normal or due to multiple hospitalizations last year.. any advice is welcomed I have been looking online and some parents say its normal or for parents who allow their children to sleep with them I am causing a crutch..
