Q: I have a shared room issue that I cannot find the answer to anywhere. It's not your typical "parent and infant" or "siblings sharing a room" situation. I share a room with my two children ages 8 and 5. I want to know how do I blend this space so everyone can be comfortable. I returned home to live with my parents to finish nursing school and because money had been tight since I'm a single mom. Please help if possible. I scoured the internet and only see parent and infant combos and articles on how old is too old to co-sleep. -Sent by Black Rose

Editor: Black Rose, that is an excellent question and I'm so glad you wrote in. I'm sure many of our readers, their family members, friends, and/or neighbors have found themselves in similar situations and would appreciate any tips and tricks, too. Readers, please help!
