How to convince a father to stop allowing 11yr. old son ( only child ) from sleeping together?
Father has been seperated from son's mom for almost 4 yrs. and father has son every weekend from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. By all means there is nothing going on, but the son can't even go to bed by himself. Father says until son tells him he doesn't want to sleep with him, it will stay that way.
Then thats his choice its not up to you to convince him of anything, so let it go, some families do sleep together ,because it is a guy doing it doesnt mean its not okay, Probably soon it will happen naturally as his son will want his own privacy as he becomes a man.and his hormones take over.!!
