Child sleeping with the parents on the bed

Q: Can both parents sleep with their own child of 10-11 years of age on the same bed because of the lack of space in the room? Would this not affect the parents marriage?

A: He should be under a different sheet or blanket altogether. At least keep a few pillows or cushions between themselves. If it is girl them let her be totally on the mother's side.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
