For now, yes. Although I admit that I'm getting tired of it. Me and dh have been talking about requiring our dd to knock before coming into our room.
Yes. We don't have any "off-limit" areas within our house. However, if the door is closed, then they know that they need to knock and wait for an answer before coming in. Other than that, they are welcome in all areas of our house.
If one of us is in there and the door is open, they are free to join us to chat and hang out. If the door is closed, they know to knock and wait--- that's true for every room in our house. They have no need or interest to go in our bedroom when we're not in there.
Of course, when it comes to sickness or injury, all bets are off and they don't knock and wait-- they're old enough to know the difference between WANTING attention (they can wait a moment) and NEEDING it.
no but they do it anyway
They're taught that any closed doors require knocking first whether it be a bathroom, bedroom, office etc.
Unless you're having sex or something, lock the door!
Otherwise, why should your child have to knock?
Quoting waytomanykids10: Only when the door is open and we are in there.
