At night time do you close the door to your room or your childrens rooms?

We leave ours open because I want to hear the kids if they need me.
The kids doors are open because they say they're scared to have it closed.

  • I keep my door open, and their doors clothes. The house doesn't stop when they go to bed and they won't sleep if they can hear what is going on in the house.

  • Our daughters' room door is closed (unless they wake up in the middle of the night to open it), and our door stays open so I can hear them.

  • Our door gets closed, DS's door is closed but not pulled tight so I can look in on him every so often.

  • My daughters (ages 6 and 7) share a room and they prefer to not have the door shut. So I crack it. My son (he is 3) on the other hand likes it closed.

  • I leave it partially closed until I go to bed, then I open it.

  • we leave them open. not only so they can get to us easier in the night but also because the rm gets stuffy when the door is closed all night

  • Kids usually leave their doors open. Sometimes they get shut.

    My door stays shut (and locked if we're in there doing stuff...).
