  • I don't believe there IS a legal age for biological siblings to stop sharing a room. Why do you ask?

  • I agree, I don't believe there's a legal age that biological different sex siblings have to have different rooms. I believe there is an age when you take foster children or adopt.

  • I don't think there is a legal age either..they are your kids so I think it's up to you not the law

  • I don't get why people are so hung up on this shit.

    Is this the new way that people feel they can get back at their ex's?? Get over it....

  • In my state, different sex siblings have to have their own room at 2. It varies state to state, you have to look up your state laws, or call your local DCF. They'll know.

  • i shared a room with my brother when i was 13 and he was i dont see why they need to have different rooms. unless there's a documented issue, i dont see why any state in their right mind would make a law against this...especially as young as two.

    i mean, you can always hang a sheet or put up a bookshelf in the middle of the room to give them each some privacy.
