Why having your kids share a room can be a great idea.

Being lucky enough to grow up with a brother or sister is a privilege that not all children enjoy. For this reason, it is the parents’ duty to try to foster a good relationship between them, one that becomes stronger over time and that forms a bond that will last a lifetime.

Nowadays it is usual for children to sleep in separate rooms from their earliest childhood but the habit of both sharing bedroom and playroom is something that begins to get lost and on which child specialists put the focus. Whether due to the increase in purchasing power in comparison with our grandparents or due to social reasons, the truth is that it is no longer so common for our children to live in the same room during the first years of life, a fact that makes them lose a large number of very enriching benefits for their personal development.

Child psychologists and pedagogues confirm that the fact that our children get accustomed to sharing a space will result in benefits in many ways, such as, for example:

A greater bond is created between the siblings, since they have a common place that both feel as their own.

They learn the value of solidarity and generosity by having to give up part of their personal space.

Children feel safer, especially at night.

These are just a few of the examples that experts say can result from a shared use of a bedroom. However, they also warn that, in order for this to happen, it is necessary to know how to teach the children so that they are respectful and do not disturb the coexistence with their roommate.

In addition, there are a multitude of furniture solutions that will make this decision a success. Depending on your needs and the age of the children, the space can be used to perfection with bunk beds, screens or flexible furniture as suggested in this detailed article in El Mueble.
