My kids share rooms. My 11 year old and 9 year old share a room. My almost 7 year old and my 3 year old share a room. We are looking to get a house one day where they will all have their own room, but it is not going to happen today. My 11 year old hates sharing a room. She is at the age where she wants privacy. I understand that (she is also at the "everybody hates me, no one understands me" argue with everything I say age). A few days ago. She rearranged the hall closet, drug an small lamp in there, laid out a blanket on the floor and put a few of her things in it. She wanted it to be a kind of reading room at first, but now she pretty much stays in there all of the time. She has taken several toys in there and has been in there most of the day. I was fine with that. She needs a place to call her own, I get that. So tonight she comes to me and says she wants to sleep in there. I told her no. She has a bed and I don't want her sleeping on the floor in the closet. She cried and begged, told me I didn't care about her - normal 11 year old drama. She has school tomorrow. I told her I might let her do it on a night that wasn't a school night. I have to think about it. They have made pallets on the floor in their rooms occasionally on non school nights and this would not be that different. So what would you do? Would you have let your daughter sleep in the closet? Am I the worst mother in the world?
