I was just wondering a couple things


At what age should you not share a room with a sibling.

At what age is it ok to walk to the store by yourself?

At what age is it ok to babysit?


Just curious to what people think

First question might be a matter of space or finances; my sons and daughter share rooms and they are 20/18 and 13/9.

I let my sons walk to the store by themselves at 12. I still will not let my 13 y.o. dd walk anywhere out of the neighborhood by herself.

I probably won't be letting my 13 y.o. babysit by herself, but that's just an individual thing, because my 9 y.o. probably will be great at 13 with babies and kids because she already helps me when I watch my friends' little ones and she is a helper at church with the 3 y.o.s.

1. 5 years old if different gender, 7 years old if same gender

2. Depends how far the store is

3. 13 if it's in the daylight, 15 if it's at night

My daughters are 15 and 13 :)

I plan on a large family so own rooms will probably never happen, lol.

everything else is subjecable to age and location for me.

Awe! Its cool you got one of each though. We are on girl #3. At this rate if we do get a boy he would get his own room by default, lol.

I dont think my kids have ever shared a room. But they are brother and sister. For a boy and girl probably not after 6/7. Thats when mine started wanting more gender specific decor and such. Shoot they share a bathroom and for an 11 and 14 yo its like the Apocalypse. 

My kids still dont walk anywhere b them self. They have to have a friend or each other.

12 is the legal age to babysit, thats when my daughter started but I think its more of a maturity thing to me.
