My daughter has a playroom separate from her bedroom. When she has friends over they stay in the playroom. She has a computer in her bedroom and I really don't want a bunch of kids messing with it. Also since there are no toys in her room it makes it easier to keep it clean. Do you think this rule in unreasonable?

  • Boys share a bedroom. All the toys and games are in the toyroom. It works great for us.

  • no! i wouldnt want them in the bedroom, there is no reason for it if there arent any toys in there!

  • Nope. That would be fun! I had several friends growing up that did the same thing. We weren't allowed in their bedrooms. Great idea, by the way!!

  • nope..when ds has a friend over, they are only allowed to play in his playroom or outside. no playing in the bedroom, or running the house.

  • If we had enough rooms we would do the SAME thing! ONLY special toys in their rooms.

  • We had a bedroom and then a playroom but my girls were fighting too much and not really playing in their playroom. I split all the toys up and gave them separate rooms. They actually play with the toys now and not as much fighting. I would love to have a third room to use as a playroom.

  • No it doesnt sound unreasonable to me. My sons room and playroom are the same room but we dont have enough rooms to seperate them.

  • This sounds like a reasonable rule to me. The playroom is where the action is. It should be a pretty enticing place! A room with an unsupervised computer doesn't sound like a good place for kids to "play".

  • *Makes mental note to move the toys BACK out of the bedroom and turn my craft room back into a play room* Grumble grumle

  • Just FYI. The computer has no internet access. I don't believe that an eight year old needs internet in her room. She can come downstairs for that.
