I have a family member dealing with this right now... relationship fell apart, lost the shared housing, financially cannot afford to get a large enough place for separate bedrooms.. Daughter is 2, son is 9 months... And again, I say, who cares?? When they are that small, does it really matter?
What about boys and girls sharing rooms? At what point/age does that become unacceptable, or does it?
This is pretty much how I feel about it, although sometimes the unexpected happens.
The solution is simple, dont have more kids than you can afford and provide for. Putting three kids in a room is absurd. Putting teenagers with younger kids is INSANE. Stop having kids if you cannot afford the room and space for them.
If I had more kids, I would try to stick to 2 kids per room, and keep it. As close together in age as possible. We have three kids, each has their own room.
Pit isn't always possible to have a larger home with more bedrooms, though. If my only option were to have 3 in a room, then that is what I would do.
1 and only 1. Our rule is our room each kid room plus a playroom

When I was growing up, my family lived at my aunts smaller sized four bedroom home for awhile. There were five of us kids in one room (boys and girls) aged 9-2, the two babies in the respective parent's rooms. Then all the toys were in the other room.
