The word is "no".

The object is a lock.

Both are effective.

I usually gate my 2 and 3 year old in one of their rooms for 20 minutes with their toys.  I can get a pretty full routine in during that time and they are used to it.  

I don't mind a "potty party" if I'm just going pee.  It helps me potty train them.

Mhmmm... I have an open door policy during the pre-potty training age so potty is a normal concept but after that you definitely don't need to literally be up my butt and whatever you need can wait 3 minutes.

Yes well even saying no and locking the door still has some of us mommies with little fists banging on the door and screaming fits to deal with.

i don't care if my kids see me in the bathroom or not.. i don't lock my  doors inside the house because i expect my kids to keep theirs opened and locked. I also don't complain about my kids  following me or being where they shouldn't be though :p

Why thank you. Saying no and locking the door? Why did millions of moms not think of that?
