It's time for a Mom Confession — because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.
This Week's Confession:
I let my son fall asleep to DVDs.
My son is a horrible sleeper. He never wants to sleep in his bed. So on some nights (okay..most nights), I let him watch a movie on his portable DVD player in bed. -- amy985
Question: Do you let your kids fall asleep to TV or DVDs?
Yes, all the time.
Yes, but only in desperate situations.
