Are your kids allowed into you and your hubby's bedroom without having to ask?

Are they allowed in and out as they please?


ETA: To some moms that say that their room are "always off limits", why is that?

My reasoning is to learn boundaries and respect for adults.

Nope. My room is my sanctuary lol. They need to knock and ask permission.

There is nothing in our room that she would need, so she doesn't go in it. If I am in the room, and the door is open she can come in and talk to me, but if the door is closed she needs to wait since it usually means I am talking to my husband while he is changing.

they knock first.  not allowed to just enter at will.  the rest of the house is free use for everyone.. mom and dad need private adult space.
that said.. they are always let in :)

Our door is always open. Unless after DS is in bed and we are having sex we shut and lock the door. But DS is a very sound sleeper - once slept through tornado warnings and us picking him up, carrying him downstairs to a cold basement and sticking him on a bean bag on the floor until it was all over. He had no clue the next day.

But this is because DS was adopted at age 4 and a 1/2 and slept with us for awhile until he could acclimate to his own bed (he had never slept in a bed alone). Not sure if we would have done things differently if I had children from birth. Although I am pretty open so I can't imagine having a closed door policy. Obviously, we teach that he should knock on most doors (although I confess I don't when I enter his room but I am in and out all the time either checking on him or putting away laundry, etc. so it is not a big deal to him.) He mostly has the door shut to block out the sounds of us talking in the other room.

Yes they are. They were also taught to knock on doors so if ours is closed, they need to knock first.

Mostly, at night though it's locked so he has to knock

Yes, they can go into our room. The only reason they do is to watch some tv. Otherwise they don't bother going in. Oh and my little likes to take naps on our bed.
