Is there a law that says opposite sex children cannot sleep in the same room?
Question Details: I have 2 kids, boy and girl. We are trying to find out if there is a law stating there is an age that they cannot share a room.
There is no law which prohibits kids from the opposite sex from sharing a room. Unfortunately, not every family has enough bedrooms to provide "private" living quarters for all of their children. However, if you are in a custody battle, some judge's will frown on the co-hab of a boy and girl, especially older children (they don't usually have a rub when then are younger-- under twelve usually.) If you have this situation, you may want to set some things in place to demonstrate that you are still trying to preserve some privacy for the children. For example, you can make sure that each has a set time they can have the restroom for changing clothes and personal grooming. Some parents will put up divider sections (even homemade ones with sheets) so that each child has a "private area" within the room.
