I hated sharing a room with my sister. it was bad enough she had to follow me every where. I hated her like poison. ever single thing I had to sneak around to do. I could to stand her guts as a kid. I also disliked my mom a lot for making me her built in baby sitter. I always thought parents should mind their own kids. As we got older I had so much fun with her. She and I were going every where like the mall shopping and even to parks. we are all grown up now and we are good. I am glad kay never had to share room with anyone even though she was in y bed for years.

Yes I shared rooms with my older sister for a few years. It wasn't bad because we had a large gap. But it was only temporarily because we had guests living with us.

I've never shared my room with nobody, as I was the only child growing up. Which, in a way, I enjoyed just being by myself. As I grew older though, I wanted a bro or a sis to play with. But, than when my half bro came along, I was able to play with him. Now, he would live in Nashville while growing up, so, I didn't get to see him that much, until I moved down to Nashville to be with my dad because of bad behavior. LOL Than, I got to play with my half bro more. We'd go swimming at the pool at the apartment complex that we lived in. We had our own rooms though, so, I didn't share my room with him. I thought that he was cool while I was growing up. We were really close back than. Now, We hardly speak except on Facebook. Sad....

My first three were almost grown and gone when the next three came along. None of them shared a room which was good.

Wow I enjoyed being the older role model (of course not very good at it then) , her following me around, looking up to me being nosy and learning BUT only in the summer time did mom put both of us in one room; while at home during the school year we had separate bedrooms . . . Are you the eldest of the siblings @sharon6345 ?

I shared a room with my 2 sisters. My older sister and my younger sister, it was tough being in the middle. My older sister and younger sister are both neat freaks and I am the messier one so they couldnt stand sharing the room with me.

That I did not have to worry about thank goodness. We had to keep a clean room at all times. I wish I could be a little sloppy.

When I was young, we were poor, and the whole family of 5 sleeps in the same bedroom. I want to be rich so that I do not have to live that kind of life again.

Imagine 6 kids in a 3 bedroom house @sharon6345 and one of those bedrooms was your mom and dad's.

One time I shared a room with my brother (about 10 years ago). Then everyone wanted his space, as a result, we all moved house, only in order that everyone, indeed had his own room.

I shared a room with my sister when I was younger and it wasn't bad as we got along for the most part. I liked sharing a room as being by yourself can be lonely.

I had to share with my two sisters until I was 11 years old. Then we moved to a bigger house and I had my own room - yaay!

In the past it was common for a family to live together here. Namely a family with grand parents, parents and children. So at that time I shared a room with my grandma. I just didn't like her snores and that's all. Later I had my own room and my grandma shared a room with the maid.

I used to share a room with my brother, which was his at that time. We were using the double deck and he was on the upper deck side.

I did when I was younger. For many years with my sister and it was fine, but when my younger brother came along we had to share a room. I would never put a child through that he would scream, yell, and throw tantrums. I finally snapped and then my sister shared a room with him for many years. I cant stand my younger brother and never will. My sister always hated doing things with me as a kid, but now shes following me around.

Yes we share room until we graduated high school. It's common here in the Philippines especially the poor. :)
