Becky Mansfield, the founder of Your Modern Family, explained some of the important reasons for tucking in one’s children at night.


Mansfield took to her blog to share that one of her children always loves to ask her a question before going to sleep each night, “Mommy will you lay with me?”

The writer revealed that this question is always upon the minds of the children because they really want to spend some time with their mothers.

She also explained that when her children ask her this question, she often feels sad because she is compelled to give the answer, “Just for a second, sweetie.”

She is always caught up in other chores including tucking in her other children as well, cleaning up the kitchen, and work on her notes for work.

Whatever the reasons might have been for not staying longer with their child, the final message that we are sending to them is, “Just for a second. Other things are coming first.”

‘I know, I know… as parents, we can’t lie there all night. He would expect this, as would all of our kids. “You give an inch, they take a mile”. We think we will lie down for 5 minutes, they want 20. We give 20, they want 40,’ Mansfield wrote.

Mansfield also wrote that children share their experiences and their observation with you as you are tucking them in, and this is when ‘the good stuff comes out.’ This is when the children tell all the details to their parents, which ‘almost-teens’ never tell.

She also explained that the children are going to grow up eventually and they might not want to spend as much time with their parents then. So, parents should take every opportunity to spend as much time as possible with their kids.

Another article from Your Modern Dad also echoed Mansfield’s view that taking time to tuck your kids in at night shows your love and affection toward your child.

It is an opportunity to spend more time with them and a chance to know about what’s going on in their lives.
