Come on.., you'd better sleep with me...

"Come on .., you'd better sleep with me. ", that always said every night from 2 of my big kids to their little brother, Ian. After 2 minutes away then it became such like a "battle" between them in trying to have Ian, completed with both sides words influenced to him. This "battle" problem has started after I've arranged Ian's bed in his big brother's room 2 years ago so my preteen girl would has her own privacy.

But, I found my idea that boys should have separated room from girl is fail!
This night Ian could sleep with Natalie, the other night then with Adit. The way it go doesn't as simple as I write this. It should through (again and again) in long debates with many arguments from the 2 of them and often ended up with one side cry and the 2 other sleep together. Sometimes I feel I was a bad "jury" in this case.

Any suggestion from me?
To have 3 of them together in one bedroom is impossible since we don't have any big room left and believe me, they will stay up late because of non stop chatting when together.

I understand the kids wanting more attention at night. I'm sure they can get used to the idea of having their turn.

It's sweet that they want to have their little brother sleep with them. It shows they love him very much. As for ideas, sorry I don't have any. Aurora doesn't like sharing a bed with anyone.
