I grew up with 4 silblings in a very small older home in Texas. I never had my own bedroom or bathroom until after college. I usually shared a room with 2 other siblings and sometimes friends or cousins who would come stay with us as well. In comparison to my friends who grew up in a "traditional" American sense having their own bedroom, I think I have the advantage. These kids got to college and had to share tiny dorm rooms, etc. and were constantly stressed because they didn't know how to cope with someone else in their space. I flourished because I had gained the skills to respect others and live peacefully even if it seemed crowded. I think the size of a home does not matter to children at all as long as it is clean and happy and full of love.
