For some time now Chloe will at every opportunity disappear upstairs and get in her bed in our bedroom. I have put a child gate at the bottom of the stairs but despite this she still manages to get upstairs into our room.

When I realise she has gone up I bring her down so that she is in the room with us as I don't like her being upstairs on her own.

My question is should I leave her upstairs if that is where she wants to be? The thing is that if I let her she would stay up there all day and all night and we would never see her and she would never get any stimulation apart from her walks.

Hi Jo

I would also leave her to be honest - maybe place a bed on the landing if you're worried about her weeing etc

Diesel always does this and he's 4.5 years old - when he needs time out - he goes upstairs for sleepy time and can stay up there for hours -

I often think about bringing him down - but he is very content and happy up there xxx

I think you have to go with your gut instinct on this one. It can depend on the day, the weather and if the household is loud or busy.

Bailey is 9 1/2 and he does the same. Sometimes I just leave him because he likes his quiet time away from the girls and I do think with him being a bit older he needs some rest and also he always goes upstairs if it's cold outside and he doesn't want to go out in the garden. We do have to enourage him back down sometimes.

But I definately tend to agree with Dee - let her go when she wants to for a while and then encourage her to join in again once she is rested?

Yes as has been said I agree that you should leave her.

My Diesel does it too, normally at night time just goes off to bed (our bed )

He seems quite happy there and even if he was in the living room he would be in his bed or on the couch sleeping anyway xx
