these are great for kids sharing, especially if they crave more privacy. They are called Privacy Pop bed tents.

By all means consider your own convenience when thinking out the kids' room. Some of these beds look like they'd be MURDER for an adult to make up, and probably impossible for a child to learn to make his/her bed.

With bunk beds, there's always the younger child's complaint, 'How come S/HE gets the top bunk?' But they seem to survive the injustice and grow into well-adjusted adults (though this weekend, I listened to two very devoted sisters in their 20s, and the younger made that complaint - just incidentally, she is a strongly competitive/ambitious person: trying to 'reach the top' still?). Two of my nieces had a trundle bed/bunk bed and they slept on the lower areas as the norm and could take turns sleeping in the top bunk if one had a friend sleep over. So no arguments or resentment.

As for younger children moving in with the older child, I've noticed that often the older child not only wakes up when the younger child fusses, the older children I know get out of bed, cover or comfort the younger, and go back to sleep, and the parents only find out about it after it's been going on for some time. Sharing can actually bring out the love and protectiveness of an older sibling.
