We have 2 kids (ages 11 and 8) and we are moving cross country next month. One of the houses we are looking at has the master bedroom on the first floor and the kids bedrooms in the basement. I've always been on the same floor as my kids so this feels a little weird. If they were younger it would be a definite no but at their ages, I think it's doable. We thought about having a monitor outside their rooms on at night so if they need us we could hear them. Anyone in the same situation or have any thoughts on this?
