My son is 9 y/o, I don't sleep all night with him, but I get in bed with him for around 15 minutes while he gets more sleepy. We talk a little about life or his day, any topic, and then I leave his room. It is a bad o insane habit?
I think it sounds wonderful! I have an 81/2 year old little boy and we talk at the end of the day while he is falling asleep too.It's not a bad habit at all! It is building wonderful memories, and you are sending him off to sleep feeling secure and happy.
I agree, it is good bonding time. I read to my boys before bed in the living room (they have bunkbeds, not too comfortable for an adult,lol) but once they brush and potty, I go into their room to tend to the bearded dragon and we wrap up the day with chatter about what my oldest did at school, my middle one's favorite parts of his day at home, etc.
As long as you aren't sleeping in there or he isn't reliant on you to fall asleep, it seems fine.
