2 kids in the same room....

Anna (4) and Colin (2) are in the same room and have been since Colin arrived...I know they cant stay in the same room forever when would YOU make the switch...we would be moving Colin in with our 8 yr old Or into his own room if the other room gets finished soon. Colin and Anna are really close and I worry about both of them having troubles sleeping in their own rooms too!

  • I think i would wait another year..i see nothing wrong with waiting till the other bedroom is finished..they are both still young and your daughter is not asking for privacy yet, thow im sure you have her change another room or with him out of the bedroom...i think its fine you shouldn't worry yet and i think its great they are so close..start off really slow when you move one out of the bedroom ..and maybe your daughter will be able to help him get adjusted to the change...

  • I would say move any time might be okay. Start out first maybe like on the weekends. Or have them take a photo or a stuffed animal that they each like and then let them trade them at bedtime. My girls ages 9,7, and 5 all sleep together.

  • If their rooms are side by side might be easier. Maybe Anna could help you with Collin?
    My kids share a room and when our house gets done, they will have their rooms.

  • I'd say you can wait another year, and maybe by then the other room would be ready.

  • Im from alabama and there is actually a law that says a boy and a girl can not stay in the same room after the age of 6.

  • By school age, so another year or two.

  • I'd let them until your daughter starts to ask for privacy
