My stepson will be 11 years old next month and has just broke the habit of sleeping on our bedroom floor. We moved his room to the room right next to our bedroom so he can hear us and feel more comfortable. But now he wants to use our bathroom (he has his own bathroom in his room!) to shower and brush his teeth. I don't feel comfortable with that and I feel like it's just creating another bad habit. I DON'T mind when he comes in to cuddle with dad in bed in the morning... I welcome it. I don't mind if he wants to come in and chat when we are in there. I just don't understand why my stepson has to use our bathroom when he has his own. I don't want to feel like I cannot come in my room because stepson is in there running around unclothed. Hubby and I have talked about this and I thought we had come to an agreement but last night (after he allowed him to use it once again) I mentioned it and he told me that he doesn't understand why it bothers me and that it's not a big deal. He also said that he is not going to agree that it won't happen again. So here I am, once again, trying to come up with a solution and I want to know what everyone thinks... am I overreacting and should let this go completely? Or should I tell hubby that I can see he is not willing to say no to SS but that while I am at home to please respect my wishes? (meaning that he can use it if I am not at home) What do you think is fair?
