I am a single mom to 3 boys, 20, 17 and 12.
My 12 year old still likes to sleep with me once in awhile and to be honest, I don't mind it one bit. I like having him next to me just as much as he likes to be near his mom. It is a security thing for both sides. He was only 6 when his dad left and he is the only one out of the 3 boys who sees his dad who ended up marrying the 'best friend' when he left us 6 years ago. He is starting to deal with his issues from what happened with his dad and so sometimes he is upset and wants to sleep with me. I have some friends who think I am wrong for allowing my son to be in the same bed with me. I have a huge king size bed and its not like we even touch one another when we sleep, as I said its totally a comfort.security thing for both of us and it only happens about once a week. Anyone have an opinion on this? I mean I really don't think its wrong, if he were 15 or something maybe...
