Me and wife have two young daughters, ages 1 and 4, and safety is most important. That is why we moved to Simi Valley originally, crime is relatively low, there are a lot of parks for the kids, and we actually know our neighbors (not very common for most parts of southern california). As I mentioned my work will have me covering most of the state and will frequently have overnighters away from my family. We are looking for a three bedroom house (townhouse) around $1300. The little research we have done says that Castle rock, Highlands Ranch or Parker are indeed nice areas to live in. Does this sound right or does anyone have other suggestions.
If you like Simi Valley, you'll like those three.

I have three children and they cannot share a room.
Why? I'm assuming that at least two of them have to be of the same gender, and if so, then why is there a problem? I don't think young children mind sharing a room much at all, I didn't.

Because the there is an 8 year age difference between the two that are the same gender. My youngest will be two soon and my eldest is 10. It is not fair to make my oldest share a room with his baby brother. Then I have a seven year old daughter in the middle. I don't think children should share bedrooms unless they are the same age or close in age and the same sex. In this instance I think it is reasonable for each of my children to have separate bedrooms.

Are you still interested in Parker, or have you changed your mind? $1100/mo. will be tough to get a 4BR rental, but you could look for something that has a den/office/basement that you could use as a bedroom.
