Hi, everyone!

I'm new to this site and am looking for some advice. Long story short, we recently lost our house to foreclosure and my husband and I are living with our sons in a two bedroom apartment.

The problem I'm having is with my kids. They are used to having their own rooms and they are not adjusting well to being roommates. I'm looking for some ideas about how to create man caves for each of them in the room they share. The problem is, I don't know how.

If you have any ideas, please share. I'm at my wits end with their bickering, it's nonstop. I don't know what to do.

Thank you!

I'm not good at decorating. I wonder if you could work on teaching them to be polite to each other. Moderate voices, respectful words. When you teach behavior, you have to have a very specific idea of what the correct behavior looks (and sounds) like, and then you have to communicate it very clearly, check their understanding of the details, and do the whole thing with patience and good humor.

I have the perfect solution for you. I bought this for my kids and they love it. Its called a privacy pop and you can find it on their website (privacypop .com). Its basically an enclosure/bed tent. Let me know what you think.

Oh by the way, how old are your sons?
