Our 7 year old would like for us to knock before we go into his room and feels that he should be able to lock doors to rooms that he is in if he so chooses. My husband and I are in a disagreement as to whether this is appropriate or not for a 7 year old. I'd like some opinions and please we don't want your opinion on whether or not we are good parents we only want opinions that focus on the issue and why you feel the way you feel.
Some furdther perspective. We have never caught him doing anything wrong when he has been in a room with the door closed other than things like watching TV or playing when he should be cleaning his room (who hasn't dealt with that). This would apply whether he was alone or with friends.
Thanks in advance

We don't lock our door, so there would be no reason for our child to lock hers. I'd respectfully knock if requested.
