Laying with children before they go to sleep?

How long did you stay with them until they fell asleep?  My girls are 10 and 5. I read them a story and lay in the room with them until they are fast asleep.  

My friends all think this is too much. I just want to make sure they are safe and know that mommy loves them.I want to be the last face they see before bed.

What age were your kids when you left them all alone to fall asleep?

I lay with my 19 month old until he falls asleep x I will do it as long as he wants me to. There's nothing wrong with comforting your child :)

Really? you were not afraid they would feel unloved?
