today i want to know your take on shared rooms. did you share a room growing up? do you want your kids to? my thoughts below...
when we were kids, my little sister and i always shared a room. i was fifteen when i got my own room, and i loved having my own space, but i missed having someone to talk to at night. as a matter of fact, my sister slept in my bed for about a year after we made the switch to separate rooms. in the summertime, when my older sisters would come home from college, the four of us would all sleep on the sectional in the basement. even now, when i go home, i have the urge to camp out in the basement and watch the cosby show with my sister until we fall asleep.
so, i want my kids to share a room. one, because i don't want to own a house with a lot of bedrooms (more vacuuming, dusting, etc), two, because it helps kids learn to share/work together, and three, because the best times to talk seem to be when you're laying in bed. i want them to develop a relationship with each other (without mom or dad forcing them to). not to mention i think it helps kids keep each other in check as far as late night texting, sneaking out, and other dreaded teenage stuff goes.
so what about you? would you make your kids share a room? is it something you've even thought about before? more beautiful shared bedrooms below:
