My son is 7 and has his own room, tv..ex.... but here lately he has gone to wanting to sleep with me or in my room.. he doesn't care where just as long as he is in my room.. a few time I have caught him laying outside my door.. but I see now it's more when he has come back from his fathers for the day or weekend ... Should I be worried ???

I call him a few time a day, and he calls me before bed time... only change that I can see is his father has a new gf... My soon to be husband, has been here and in my sons life for awhile, so there hasn't been any change here other then mason has gotten alot closer with Lee ( my other half ) then he used to.. he was very stand-off-ish with him.. but once he seen that Lee was not going to just up and leave him.. he clung on to him for life.. My son has been threw hell and back with his father being in and out of his life, but for the past yr he has done better and does more things with his son... but as for getting any answers out of him is well a waste of air.. all his father can say is " he's fine when he's here.. must be a problem with you.. " and my son can't really give me an answer just cause... is really all I get.. and when I ask what all did you and daddy do... its really nothing he played with his brother or we played the Wii.. thats about it.. then he'l toss in OH and I brush my teeth every night ... see... and he shows off them pearly whites...

I would talk to your son and ask him what goes on at dads house and then ask your ex what goes on over there because something isn't right, he does miss you when he's gone I'm sure but I would look into that. I would call your son every night he is over there to say good night, because you are his rock. I'm a licensed daycare provider and something is going on at dad's or has there been a change at your house? Well good luck!!

I have talked to his father and the only thing is he has to share a room with his brother when he is at his dads house.. I have been putting him back in his bed at nights, and he doesn't fight me on it.. but 20 min later I see a shadow under my door, and there he is pillow and blanket, curled up on the floor at my door.. or I'll wake up and he is beside my bed on the floor... My son has never acted this way and has slept in his own room from the time I brought him home from the hospital.. but for about 2 months now, he has started acting this way... I have tried talking to him but I can't get a reason to why he wants to sleep with me, he just says " I don't know.. just cause "

talk to his father and find out if your son is sleeping in the room with him and if so tell him that you woiuld like it if he wouldnt let him do that becuase you want to be consistant about him sleeping in his own room. then reinforse it by putting him back in his own bed when he is at home.
