Did you let your son and daughter share a room?

What age were they and how did it work out? We have enough rooms for everone plus an extra. But my 4 year old dd always begs for ds to get to stay in her room with her. He's def to little now (only 1 and a half) but im thinking maybe when he's 3 they could try . Not sure it could end up being giggles or fighting all night. Seperate rooms are probably best but i know room sharing also helps little ones not be so afraid at night. So did you attempt this and how did it go?

My ten year old dd and five year old ds share a room. I think Sharing is good for kids. My dd gets changed in their bathroom.

I have two girls, but my brother and I shared until I was 13. We had a great time.

I did not. I wouldn't have had an issue with it when they were young, but I think every kid around 9-10 deserves to have their privacy.

My brother and I shared a room until I was 4 or 5. It was no big deal.

I shared a room with my brother - while they are young, it should be ok esp if its something she wants to happen.

My twins still do and always have. They have their own rooms but by morning they are sound asleep next to each other.

They're 11

I've had boys and girls share a room, girls share, boys share. Heck even when they had their own rooms by gender I'd find them together. For my older kids they were tweens. Currently my 9 year old son and 6 year old DD share. I was gonna seperated them but they aren't ready yet.

I'll be honest I've never understood the big deal.
