TRAIN THEM TO BE INDEPENDENT

It is part of growing up that children learn to detach themselves from you. It should not always be them grabbing your skirt, or them holding your hand every step, or them sleeping beside you. It is in fact not a common practice in other countries for their kids to sleep in the same room as their parents, much more do they sleep in the very same bed.

It is a start then that you at least train them to sleep next to your bed. Buy them their own bed to sleep on. My Anya is used to sleeping in her own toddler bed. Prior to that she has her own crib when she was an infant then converted to baby bed when she got a little older and moves a lot. It is a matter of training and them getting used to it. Make them love having their own space. Make them respect yours. This will somehow make them stand on their own and start the early independence. Just make sure that they will be safe in that bed. Then get something that will interest them. It could be anything. From log beds to toy shaped beds...you can make it interesting for them. For initial surprise you need to put covers and stuffs for kids to make them love it and sleep there. In time, it can be bare and still they will sleep there because it is theirs!
