    I love HGTV, and watch House Hunters.

    It seems like most of the families shopping for houses insist that the kids have their own rooms. I grew up sharing a room with my sister---she was 10 years older than I was, and two of my brothers shared a room. (so five kids in 3 bedrooms) The house was my grandparents originally and they raised 8 kids in those same bedrooms.

    Thoughts? memories? How about your kids?

    Shared a room with my brother from age three to ten. Then we moved to Detroit and all three kids had our own rooms.

    I was the only girl. I had my own room while my two little brothers shared for most of their lives at home.

    I had two daughters and they shared a room until they were 7 and 11, when I bought a house that had 3 bedrooms.

    :jj: Not in my parents house. I is a big boy now and have my own house.

    I like it here in Detroit. I don't live in the city of course.

    shared a room with one of my sisters until we moved when i was 13.

    i don't think it's necessarily a bad thing for kids to have to share a room. it forms a bond.

    to this day, we are closer to each other than we are to our oldest sister, who had her own room.
