    Daughter sleeping with father
    An_249379 posted:
    I am in a relationship with a 38 year old man who has been divorced 3 years now. He has a 7 going on 8 year old daughter who refuses to sleep in her own bed ever since the divorce. He has her fifty percent of the time. She sleeps in her own bed at her mom's house. The mother is also in a relationship engaged to be married to the man that she has been with since (and actually before) the divorce. The mother is giving him a very hard time about this and making him feel innappropriate for allowing it to happen. My boyfriend feels aside from locking her door from the outside (which we would never do) that it is impossible to change this and hopes she will just grow out of it. What is the right thing to do??!!
