More and more kids are finding roommates at younger ages. The New York Times recently reported that parents will have their kids live together to cut down on costs and save space in their tiny New York apartments. Sometimes it’ll be two boys, or other times members of the opposite sex. Either way, siblings are living together in the same room. But is having a boy and girl room together going to affect the child’s development?
“Parents of opposite-sex children in New York, and other daffy real estate markets, confront what seems to be an impossible equation,” NY Times said. “The family needs to add a bedroom or subtract a child. The other solution — shared quarters — seems elegant at first, but quickly develops into a high-stakes calculus. The variables include age, gender, family dynamics and personality, and they change over time. What could go wrong, but everything?”
