I tend to do co-sleeping. I worry to much about the wiring in the house. I can turn our big sun room into sectioned private areas. Plus, They still have their own rooms with their own beds and doors to close.
But, A couple years back we had an electric outlet spitting sparks and I changed out the outlet.
However, It leaves me nervous. Then, Last summer we had a neighbor in the corner house have their home burn down (not sure of cause) but it makes me worry.
It makes the kids worry too.
While I don't bed share. I need to room share or have the rooms next to each other and I want doors open so I feel like they are ok. If the doors are closed I worry I won't hear them. I sleep much deeper. (which probably means I'm less able to hear them because I'm less alert and awake) But, I feel better rested thinking we are near and within ear shot of each other.
Plus, My kids are more relaxed then if I force them in their beds with doors closed and shut off from family.
Is this normal?
And when should I expect that my kids are going to not need mom to be close by so much? When will me kids tell leave to their rooms and start closing their doors? about what age range does Independence start kicking in
Anyone with an older child with Asperger's? Do they tend to be more clingy and needy of parent?
What do unschoolers do?
