<p>Dear keighley,</p><p> </p><p>There is no law or reason that a sister and brother can not share the same bedroom at any age. In many countries, families share bedrooms at any age.</p><p> </p><p>If separate bedrooms are needed or desired, the age at which this occurs depends on the maturity of the children and the relationship. </p><p> </p><p>AT the age of sexual maturation, is a good start, which is not the same for everyone.</p><p> </p><p>Some people prefer age 8, this is the first years where concrete thinking comes into play.</p><p> </p><p>others have separate rooms much earlier and much later. I would think, in the U.S. you would have separate rooms for brother's and sister no later than say, age 13.</p><p> </p><p>In the uk, children are expected to have separate rooms by age 8.</p><p> </p><p>In the U.S. military separate room are expected in base housing starts at age 10.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
