I used to share a room with my sister when we were younger. We hated each other as kids but it wasn't because of that lol. My girls share a room now and will for the near future, but they are still in toddler beds.
I think it's alright up to a certain age. Four, five. When there is a possibility they start to "explore."
My cousins shared a room til they were teenagers....my aunt had all 3 of them back to back 1 boy and 2 girls and til about 12 or 13 they were fine but at that age they all wanted their privacy.
There are actually laws for this that vary from state to state. Lol obviously it's not reinforced but if for some reason a person got in trouble with CPS they would be considered neglectful.
*ETA* It's not a law. I just looked it up because I was curious, my sociology instructor mentioned it during a lecture a few weeks ago but it is something that CPS looks at. They like kids of opposite sexes to be in seperate rooms by the time one hits puberty.
