I was catching up with a friend, she must be around 35-37 yrs old, not a close friend, but we have a rapport. Has two kids around 6 - 8 yrs old. The kids need separate rooms for online school, since Covid WFH, she uses the master bedroom as her office, her husband uses their guest room. After a few weeks of WFH, and early morning/late night work meetings, they ended up sleeping separately Sunday through Thursday. Sleep together Friday and Sat night. : ) I didn't ask, she volunteered all this information. She said she is worried about the impact on their kids. I found that kind of silly and almost LOL said 'you need a bigger problem.. we are in a pandemic, you worry about this...' She was not amused, and changed the topic saying, 'you might not understand.' I don't know what she meant by that.. but question here is: Is it really a big deal if young kids see parents sleeping separately? Can cause emotional damage to the tender impressionable minds? .
