I have a 15 yo son who INSISTS he canNOT sleep if he is too warm. I agree - if I am too warm, it is hard to sleep. But he will stay awake most of the night if it's too warm in his room. So lately, he has been opening his window and putting the fan in it to blow the cold air in. Not too bad but when I go in to wake him up, it's been 52 degrees in his room! Quite chilly for me! However.... my husband (who feels the same about the room being cool) doesn't think he should have his window open so far. He thinks he will catch pneumonia if he keeps the window open like that all night. He has a slight cold right now and I'm wondering if he will be able to get over this cold or if he instists on keeping the window open, if he will just not get healthy?? Please advise... Thank you in advance!!View Thread
