That’s my confession. Kids in one room, adults in the other.

You do what you have to. Our family of five used to live in a one bedroom, 600 sq ft home

Why? Are the kids okay with it? What do they tell their friends?

At what point does the comfort of our families not matter? My husband and I strongly believe that if you cant afford to take care of kids (that includes having the space to house them) than you probably shouldnt be having kids. Its not fair to the kids 5 kids to a room!! Are makeing an effort to change this? Dont ypu think your children deserve to have their own space and their own place to get away from the other kids? There isalso a health issue with this. But thats a topic for another post.

What would you do if somehow you had cps called on you? What are the housing laws where you are?

Here you cant have anymore than two to a room for renta./

I live in a three bedroom with a family of 6.

When my parents were in that situation they put the girls in one room, boys in the other and then they slept in the living room on a fold out bed. Mom did daycare so early in the morning they’d get up put their bed away. When my youngest sister(the 6th child) was born we moved to a 4 bedroom house.

Why would CPS be called on me? Nothing I’m doing is illegal or against guidelines.

I’m not renting.
