My stepson sleeps in his mother's bed every night while he is at her home. He is 11 years old and I think this is wrong. To complicate things, he has begun to wake about an hour after falling asleep at our house and sleep or habit? walks in search of his mothers room. I actually have to stay up to make sure I can guide him back to his bed safely (we have stairs in our house!) My husband has tried to address this with his mother but she seems to think the situation is totally acceptable. I would really like to hear a response from parents.
My major concern is that his sleeping pattern has changed in the last year while our family dynamics haven't. We just picked out our Christmas Tree, I spent two hours working with him on his math test tomorrow - we are a happy family unit. We have the same custody schedule, etc. yet now actually 1 hour ago - he woke up looking for mommy. I don't understand and I am really worried which is why I am posting this in hope of help.
