I haven’t got any experience of sharing with another parent, and I was really keen to find someone to share with when I first became a single mum, but it doesn’t seem that popular in the UK. I did live in a 3 bedroom house though with a couple of friends until my daughter was 1 and a half. There were a few difficulties as not everyone who doesn’t have kids can accept and understand the additional noise, but it kind of worked for us temporarily.
In Denmark they have community houses where everyone has their own little flats but they have huge communal places and kitchen and they take it in turns to cook for everyone and help each other out with childcare etc… It’s such a shame we don’t have this here! We are so isolated and if only we had this it’d solve many issues that single parents face.
