    It wasn't the only option, the father is obviously a selfish douche.

    If my husband threatened to leave me if I didn't agree to lock our toddler in his room all night I would pack his bags for him!

    This story has me absolutely fuming! I feel so awful for this poor baby

    I do a lot of things I'm not proud of as a parent and am by no means perfect (especially by bubhub standards) - but what that dad did is disgusting.

    I've never been in that position, so I find it hard to comment. On one hand though, he was wondering down stairs in a sleeping bag, so locking him in his room seems safer - what other option did they have?

    What I also found bad is him saying he would leave his wife if she didn't agree.

    My dh is currently sleeping on a trundle in the kids room in order to get our 2 year old to stay in her bed lol.

    I can't imagine being at that point.

    I certainly hope I NEVER experience that. But I'm not going to vilify him either.

    I do wonder if co-sleeping, or sharing a room was trialled though.

    I agree! We aren't all perfect, we all have a breaking point. I know some mothers who have given phenergan to get their child to sleep.

    Absolutely agree there. I can think of quite a few different options that I would have tried before resorting to this, and i did have a non sleeper for the first 8 months of DS1's life, we co slept and still do (he's now 7!) Lol, each to their own, but there's no way i'd be locking my kid in and causing further trauma to him by doing that. I'd be wondering why he's so anxious in the first place about going to bed and putting things into place to help him sleep, even making sure they had a good bedtime routine, reading stories, having soft music, soft lighting, sitting with them till they fell asleep, putting a mattress on the floor in my room, co-sleeping, putting the kid down on the bottom floor to sleep not the top floor where he can fall down 3 flights of stairs, i'd try a million other things first rather than locking him in a room, it really makes me feel sick

    Disgusting! That father is full of it..put his own needs before his sons. Heard of cosleeping in the same room? They should be ashamed. That is child abuse in my opinion.
