Bedroom battles: Should you let your children co-sleep?

It’s one of the biggest bedroom battles, whether to let your child share your bed.

Shevonne Hunt, who presents a show on Kinderling radio, has penned a piece in today’s Daily Telegraph to say she’s not ashamed her children, aged 3 and 5, end up in her bed most nights.

“The main thing is for me letting them come to bed with me…that will always be the thing I can offer,” she told Tom Elliott.

“The one thing I can offer them as their mum is the place they can come to for safety and comfort.”

Ms Hunt, who works full-time, says she doesn’t want other parents to be ashamed to co-sleep.

But Tom Elliott questioned if children struggle to be lead independent lives if they slept in their parents beds every night.
