I don't think that's too old. My first moved into her own bed at around 8yo, but I think part of it was crowding by her then-toddler sister. She might have stayed longer, who knows. Now I have a 6.5...

Yeah, 10 was hard with mine, too. At 10 she would have tried to derail the whole thing, now she would probably go and sit outside with a book and complain later. So she has mellowed a bit. ;) How...
