When did you stop doing this with your kids? Or do you still do it?**EDIT**
Checking on them at night, that is. Do you still check on them at night before you go to bed?
My MIL checked on DH and his brother before she went to bed every night until they were almost teens. She now does it with our kids when we go to visit and stay with them.
No, it doesn't bother me, I just think its odd. FIL always makes a big deal about the fact that she still checks on the kids-he almost acts like that makes her a spectacular mother because she does it.
Yes, when they were infants I would check on them. If my kids are sick I check on them several times a night. The few times one of them had a fall and hit their head, I would wake them up to check pupils(neurotic yes, and yes I know what I am doing) If I happen to go upstairs for some reason after they are in bed, yes I open their door and peek inside.
IDK, MIL kind of looked at me weird when I told her I do not check on them every night. I personally don't know another parent who does after the baby stage.
What about you? When did you stop checking on them?
***DANG LADIES!!!!! I posted this the other night while not being able to sleep. I went to bed and haven't been back on since. When I left I think I was at maybe 40 replies! I had no idea this would be such a popular post!***
I am in no way saying checking on them is wrong, I am also not saying that not checking on them is right either. I am not trying to question any ones choices on why they do/ do not do this. It was a simple question. If you choose to see more in the question then what was intended, that is on you.
