Parents are not excused from sex, authors say

Tribune reporter
In fact, Kerner and Heidi Raykeil, a Seattle-based sex columnist, heard the kids excuse so often they decided to write a book, "Love in the Time of Colic" (Collins, $16.99), aimed at getting parents back in the sack. . . .
. . .
"Of course," he says. "I have a 5-year-old who cannot fall asleep without us in his room and will be in our bed by midnight," he says. "And other things happen as your kids get older. You get habituated into not having sex and taking each other for granted. It's easy to see your partner as wife/mom or dad/husband as opposed to friend/partner."

And parent isn't always the sexiest label. . . .

I'd say that a five year old who "cannot fall asleep without us in its bedroom"

a) has been poorly parented
b) is being used by its parents as an excuse not to have sex

Parents come first. Period.

What is a five year old child doing sleeping in parents bedroom?
Why has it not been trained to go to sleep when it should instead of dictating to the parents when bed time is.
I'd agree with skoora - the child's probably being used as an excuse not to have sex. Three guesses as to who is using it(the child, that is).
