My cousin lets her almost 10 yr old control when and where she sleeps, usually in her mom's bed. I told her she needs to stop now because her daughter will be married and sleeping in her bed with her and her husband lol. I stopped mine from sleeping in my bed by 2 and now her dad lets her sleep in his bed when she is there for the weekend and now she begs to sleep in mine! UGH! Why does one parent always undermind the other's RULES?!!
I think it depends on how the parents feel about it. A child I know who is still cosleeping at that age (actually he's 12) is doing it against his parents wishes. He refuses to sleep in his room and has a tantrum if he's told no. Of course the cosleeping issue is one of many. He refuses to go school regularly, his eating habits are out of control in spite of health concerns, he is in general completely over indulged. In this family, cosleeping isn't the issue, it's just one symptom of a much larger problem.
If the parents don't mind the cosleeping and the child is well adjusted and independent I don't see why there has to be a set age to end cosleeping. I didn't do it, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work for other people.
