Can a 16 year old sleep with a 10 year old?
If by your question you mean to ask, “Can a 16-year-old child sleep in the same bed with a 10-year-old child?,” then, assuming there is no court order barring either the 16-year-old child or the 10-year-old child from sharing a bed with another child, the answer is, in the state of Utah (where I practice law) unequivocally yes. There is no law that prevents anyone from sharing a bed with others.
Should a 16-year-old child sleep in the same bed with a 10-year-old child? I can’t think of any reason against it inherent in either child’s mere age.
Should a 16-year-old child sleep in the same bed with a 10-year-old child of the opposite sex? If they aren’t siblings, then the prudent course of action would be, in my opinion, that they should not. Needlessly risky.
