My almost 7 year old step daughter atleast once a week tries to climb into bed with her father and I. I put my foot down right from the beginning with this because it was getiing out of control. She'd climb in stating she has a nightmare, yet she doesnt seem shook up, squeezes in and makes sleeping for myself difficult with her tossing and turning. i told my husband i have no problem with him going and sleeping with her in her room when this happens ( i have even done it before with her). But he just lets her do it. and when he does she starts doing it more knowing she can get away with it. Whenever it happens and i stand my ground i tell him that none of our children will ever do this, i never did it and it wont happen, i dont think its healthy. She tends to be a very clingy kid. god forbid him and i hug or sit on the couch together she HAS to squeeze in between. She gets TONS of love and attention from us but its never enough. We also bumped heads recently on her still drinking from a sippy cup. he lets her have it before she goes to bed and she falls asleep with it. not only is it rotting her teeth but it leaks all over her sheets that I end up having to clean!
