I was watching Modern Family's "Caught in the Act" episode and left me laughing my butt off and grimacing at the same time. What did I take away from killing 21 minutes of my time? BUY A LOCK for your bedroom so you don't scar you children for life.
I think children can live without EVER seeing their parents doing it. EWW! EWW! EWW! As soon as we have our own apartment my son who is now 27 months will be getting his own room. I think the cutoff date for each child will also be 27 months MAX. I LOVE co-sleeping with my children but I think 3 yrs old is a bit too old to still be in our bed. Ideally I would have weaned him at 24 months but we are living in a room in the in laws house so that wasn't happening.
Also as I am getting used to this parenting thing, disciplining and setting boundaries ISN'T that hard. Sure the kids test you but they are TODDLERS and they NEED boundaries set my an adult. Be fair and consistent. Now the teenage years are a whole different story and I hope the foundation we are laying down now will make it easier for us to parent. I feel that you either put in the time NOW when they are young and establish a relationship of trust and respect or you try doing it LATER when its harder and they have more outside influences.
ps don't hate...make du'a for me. May Allah swt give me the wisdom to parent my children correctly. ameen.
