When our kids were young, we tried to get away for a long weekend at least once a year. I think it's critical to not just be mommy and daddy, but also husband and wife and have quality time away with your spouse! We are about to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and marriage takes a lot of work and time cultivating this relationship.

I just think that our society feels fine being separated from their own children. We are moving farther and farther from a family centered society.
This is true, however; in many cultures co-sleeping and parenting does not just happen by the parents. If we are talking culture here, many Japanese, Hispanic, and Indian families(most of whom co-sleep) are living in multi generational households. That means that while baby may co-sleep with mom, and dad for a night; they also sleep with grandma, auntie, and brothers/sisters for other nights. These parents are not with their children 24/7 because they have family who is constantly helping out. Unfortunately nations such as the USA,Sweden,Finland, and Germany to name a few are moving away from co-sleeping, probably because they are 24/7 parents. It really comes down to getting a break one way or another, no one deserves to be on call 24/7 every day all year, year after year.
