My kids share bedrooms and during the summer/weekend will sleep anywhere they want. Sometimes their rooms, sometimes the basement or living room. Dd has her own room but doesnt like sleeping alone sometimes. She will switch rooms with oldest brother, or they will all sleep in one room together. They are 11, 7 and 8. As long as there is somewhere to change clothes privately, why do people have issue with it?

I'm just trying to figure out the legal aspect. I've heard it was till the youngest turned 5.

my kids have been inseparable since the divorce. i work and their dad has a lot of GFs over on his time. they have become each others only constant. and they won't sleep apart from each other.

however, my Xs new GF can't have kids and now he wants to get full custody. i need to know what the laws are just in case.

Law or no law why would you invade your kid's privacy?

I reread my last question and I didn't mean for it to come out rude.  I mean it in general. But, you should be able to google the law for your state.  Many apts. will say if you have 2-4 people living with you can get a 2 bedroom place. 5-6 people a three bedroom.  I dont think that they include gender.  But we are in OH. I was single living in NY, so I never paid attention to it. It probably depends on if something is written in your custody agreement too.

There are no laws whatsoever, that is a cafemom myth. The only time laws come into play is in situations with foster kids, government housing, and military housing. We are moving to NY and my five year old son and y three year old daughter will be sharing because they do not want to be split up.

There are no laws except regarding foster families or wards of the state.
