So I am a father of 4, case and point I only have 3 of my children that live with me, oldest being my son whom is 6 years old, my second oldest is my daughter at 4 years old and then the youngest is 3 years old.
my wife and I have our own room with only a bathroom separating our room from our kids.
Before I moved in she slept with the kids in the same room, now they have formed a habit where if she isn't next to them at night they cry and cry and she leaves our room and sleeps with them through the night.
My mother-in law got upset because last night our youngest cried and we didn't hear him because we were asleep.
He can get out of bed, and he sleeps with his older brother and sister they all share a large bed, we are working towards buying them separate beds so this is all we have for the time being.
Any how my mother in law suggests getting a baby monitor.
I think this is crazy!
He sleeps with 2 others, he can get out of bed, and does in the morning when he wants to play.
I believe that if we get that baby monitor we will be at his beck-and-call all night
MY wife gets up every day at 4am and I have to be up at 5 am.
I believe he is too old for a baby monitor and this habit is bad and needs to stop.
What do you all think.

Let him cry, and your wife should watch super nanny when it comes,to regard to the nightly ritual. That needs to end, the sooner the better.1
