Ever since your new bundle came into your family, you used to place his crib inside your room and let him sleep there. It’s just the right thing to do during the first 3 years because at this point of time, your child still needs attention and can’t do things on their own yet without any parental help. It is also one of the ways to establish a strong bond in the family.
However, time will come that your child gets bigger and he should learn to sleep on his own bed, in his own room. This can’t be implemented that fast because for quite some time he used to sleep knowing that he has some companion. Children easily get scared and would prefer to sleep with their parents.
It should be in a slow and thorough process and explain to your child properly why there is a need for him to sleep on his own. You may join him in his room until he gets sleepy and bedtime stories would be of great help. Encourage your child that he isn’t getting any younger and soon he will grow up to be a brave man and brave men don’t sleep with their parents. These are just simple encouraging words yet very effective.
