RI Family Lawyer Question: Age Requirement for Separate Rooms?

Question:  At what age must a boy and girl have separate bedrooms?

 

Answer:

There is no specific legal answer to this question for Family Law matters in the State of Rhode Island. Sometimes this issue is one of the opinion of a DCYF investigator while other times it is the opinion of a family court judge. Boys and girls mature at different age. Personally, my thought has been that depending upon how each child is maturing, it is a good rule of thumb for the children to have separate bedrooms when one of them starts becoming more aware that their bodies are different and/or begins to question the reason for that difference. Ultimately, this is usually the decision of most parents absent court or child services intervention.
