A couple of weeks back, I answered a sleep question from a mom with two young boys sharing a bedroom. It struck a chord with my friends and readers on Facebook—it seems that bedroom-sharing is quite common. So I want to offer a bit more help. My article “Bunking Up: The Benefits of Having Siblings Share a Bedroom” (in ParentMap magazine) dishes the dirt on why it’s worthwhile to have sibs share space (a closer sibling bond and easier bedtimes are two biggies!).
My Parent 2 Parent segment on the same topic, which aired on King 5 News this spring, gives tips on making a shared bedroom scenario work for your family. So please take a peek if you're struggling with shared-bedroom woes, or if you're thinking of taking the bunk-bed plunge soon.
