My 2 and 6 year olds sleep with me in bed because I am single. I do like it as well but my queen size bed seems small for the manner they sleep. They sleep as close to me as possible. They even make me their pillow. Anyway, what's the right age for them to learn to sleep in their own bed and room? Thanks.

Technically they should be in their own beds right now!! Personally I see nothing wrong unless you think about if you find yourself a person to share your life with and then kids have that and the stress of being forced to sleep in their own rooms. It would be a big favor to their development if you took care of this now. Make it something for them to look forward to and it will be less of a strain. Be consistent or you will have more problems you don't need. Good luck with this.
