 Sure ,they are the simple handle pop door locks.No ,I have never had a teen lock a door on me.On each other yes but that is a sibling issue.

I know how to open ,it is easy.I learned when one of mine shut the door with a bang when he was three or four ,locked it ,started crying and couldn't get it unlocked.One of my husbands little tools in his tool case popped it open.I have an extra now in my bathroom drawer but have not needed it again.

No, we just knock before entering.

Sugarr, did you remove the lock or did it not come with one?

Our doors don't have locks, but I wouldn't have an issue with them having locks.

No, but we also knock before entering.  I expect the same courtesy.

Yes.

I have, on occasion, been known to break through a locked door if necessary.

Locked doesn't mean I don't get to enter if I think it's necessary.  It means I give you the privilege of privacy, but you must continue to earn that.

 our apartment has door keys for each bedroom. however our DD knows her door may be closed but not locked, the only room ever allowed to be locked is the bathroom, but the other ones who've ever done that are friends not family. no one has permission to lock their doors in our family.

My daughters are 13 and 11. They have locks on their doors and they have never used them to keep me out. They are especially helpful when the cousins are over and DDs are trying to change or have some privacy and the boys come barging in.
