So here's the skinny. We split 9 months ago after a lot of fighting and trying to reconcile things. Filed for divorce in June '08 and still going at it. He has a lawyer and our second trip into mediation yesterday he said that I was giving our son a "Barn Yard Education" because he sleeps in the same room as my boyfriend and I. He is concerned with the assumption that Benny our 2 year old is seeing things he shouldn't be. Justifiable, but no matter what I have told him about not doing things in "our" room, or Ben being 2 and needing the closeness right now, or it's perfectly normal for small children to sleep in the same room (own beds), or that being what Ben's used to right now and we've tried to change it around. He doesn't take it well. We live in a 3 bedroom Trailer, and it's roomy enough for our girls to share a room and have Ben the 2 year old in his own room, Or letting him share a room with his half-sister or "step-sister". He is very close to both of them but he won't even lay down for a nap in either of their rooms much less for bed at night. What am I supposed to do about this? I feel like pulling my hair out. It's difference of opinion and I have full intentions when he's older to combine the girls and move him into his own room anyway, Should I go ahead a make the move now or wait a year? The girls are both 6 years old and we're planning on selling the trailer and buying a house in 2 years anyway, so with that what do you think????
