I was just thinking about this recently.
I started sleeping on my own very late (for various reasons). By "sleeping alone", I mean, sleeping on your own room. Ie, not with your parents or whoever who brought you up.
This is a bit of a weird thread
Yeah, i think i was 9 as well actually.
Well, I had to share a room with a brother until I was 12 so it took a long time.
I can't remember the exact age, but it was early. I remember other people breathing next to me made me want to strangle them. It still annoys me. They may secretly be awake and plotting against me, so I sleep with one eye open.
My brother though still sleeps in our mum's bed, partly because at first there weren't enough beds in the house. He's 18 in a few days. If he doesn't start regularly using his own bed he's gonna go MJ and never be master of his own fate.
When do you start primary school? I think it was a year or two before that. Really can't remember though
Must be different for girls because I'm sure I've been sleeping alone since birth
We had limited rooms in my old house, so i had to share with my Brother.
But when we moved house when i was 9, i got my own room.
I was about 8 because I had to share a room with my brother, but my parents converted the attic into a bedroom for my brother. Problem was, the entrance to the attic was in my room.
In my own room when I was about 3, I think
Until then I used to sleep in a cot in my parents' room
I shared with my sister until my brother could sleep in a proper bed, then I shared with him until I went to uni at 19. Fun times.
When I was six my little brother came along so he moved into the bedroom with my middle brother and I got pushed out into the study.
always slept on my own assumed this was normal guess not
unless We visited family or friends and they didn't have spare rooms for each of us
of course I know some share with brothers and sisters but the OP doesn't ask that so sleeping with your parents until 9 or something is a little strange.
I was 16. Looking at some people's answers, I realize it wasn't a great deal
I had my very own bunk bed, so I started sleeping on my own in my big-girl bed at a very young age
I thought OP meant parents/guardians and not siblings. I've slept without my parents from 6months
I have a really small house with quite a lot of people.. I shared with my sister till I was 17? 18?
