There is no such law. There are laws regarding exposing a child to indecent activity, and DFCS will look into cases where a child's living conditions are unsafe, but having a 2 year old in your bedroom to sleep in an of itself does not imply that you would have either of these issues. As long as the room is clean and safe, and there is nothing untoward going on in the child's presence, you should not have any problems.
