And if your choice is down to worries about sexual exploration, do you think then same sexes should stop sharing rooms at some point too?
Someone's comment has got me think about this.

Depends on the kids and the family. My older 3 kids were still sharing a room last year (at the time they were 9yo girl, 8yo boy and 7yo girl). Then the oldest moved into a room with her 3yo sister and the other 2 continued to share until all 4 of them ended up in the room together as we prepared to move. Now the girls have their own room but, honestly, I'd rather move the 7yo (who will be 8 in a few week) and my son back into the same room together. The 3 girls do NOT get along and just fight constantly. The other 2 get along pretty good. But our son was beginning to ask for his own room. He'd share again if we told him it was what worked best right now. He'll eventually be sharing with his baby brother, who is 3 months old now. The least of my worries is they are being sexual.
