How old is too old to sleep in a bed with parents, if a child can't sleep alone?

In brief: Never

Having the child sleep with you is automatically bad---period! try a night light and insist that he stays in his own room. Sometimes you "have to be cruel to be kind" and well informed discipline is a necessity.

In brief: Love um to death

We loose about 100 babies /yr in the US to co-sleeping.
Parents roll over on top or the baby suffocates in the linens.The kid can sleep alone if you train it to, but you must train yourself to let them.
