    Is it illegal and or unethical for children older than four to share a bed with a parent?

    I think of the character "Jack" in Room by Emma Donoghue.

    I don't think so since you are a parent.  Now if it were Michael Jackson then that's a little creepy.  Although you probably want your privacy so you wouldn't want to start that bad habit.

    It is not illegal to have children sleep in the parents bed as long as its a non-sexual.   In many cultures, it's considered more than acceptable to have kids welcome into the bed of the parents. 

    Once a child moves toward puberty, the communal bed should be discontinued. 

    I'm not saying that if there are other problems in the home that Child Protective Services might not look at you funny but its not technically illegal.

    Personally it wouldn't be my choice but its also not my culture.

    I'd never let a child sleep w/ me. They'd have their own beds, w/ no excuse 2 use mine.

    A big NO. Neither of the two words would exactly prevent your children to sleep with you. But in any circumstances it's better for children age 6, 7 and up to have their own sleeping quarters and this is what the common set-up in the Western world and other rich countries but not in poorer countries where a family sleep together in a cramped abode.

    I don't think it should be deemed illegal. To each his own. I just think it's weird.
