Mom Confession: "I sleep with my child every night!"

Now, some parents choose to have a family bed because that's what works for everyone in the house.

Other moms (like yours truly) still get stealthy visitors at night when their kids wake up and crawl into mom's bed, often without mom even being aware that it happened (like yours truly). 

But then, we have this mom, who has an entirely different reason for sleeping with her (apparently otherwise nocturnally independent) son.


What are your thoughts about this one? Is it inappropriate? Harmful? Or weird but innocuous, maybe?

I really don't see the huge deal? How is it any different then a family bed sharing?

My 3 - nearly 4 - year old dd still sleeps in my bed and has since infancy. I may be terrible for it, but it's not really that bad. she sleeps in between us in our king sized bed! We are in the process of giving her room a new makeover complete with new floors and furniture, so hopefully when that gets in there she can start sleeping in her own bed.

I'm all for bed sharing when our children want to sleep with us to feel secure,   but I've never heard of bed sharing for this particular reason.  I'm not sure how I feel about it.  I think mom needs to grow a pair and stop,  kind of.

They hit the nail on the head.....'it's not the son's responsibility....she's not giving him a choice.....she's co-dependent on a 5yo.'

...lol...it sounded a little "staged" to me...honestly...but if it's real...I don't see anything wrong with it. That's her kid, not mine.
