This question is about the impact on the psyche of a boy/tween who sleeps in their parents bed and as time goes on the father moves out of the bed.
Certain things that may be of importance are:
- Child replacing his father in the husbands role of sleeping in bed with his wife
- Child not having a good role model of being a husband
- Child having an over-inflated sense of entitlement
- Child having future issues with intimate relationships with opposite sex
Of course any other information that I can't predict is appropriate as part of the answer too.
This question is based off of this closed question.
EDIT for elbrant
I know a couple families where the kids have pushed the father out of the parents bedroom. In the case of this question the why is neutral (not because the kid is scared or has special needs), it is just is. The mother may have separate issues, but this question is focused on the young boy and the sociological and psychological impact of a father whose position is displaced and how that might impact a BOY and his expectations for future relationships and his own adult self image. Also, this question has no interest in why the father allowed it to happen. There is no expectation or consideration for something like alcoholism or depression in the father. The families I know where this is happening have all appearances of normalcy and actively engaged in the community and work life.
