My bedroom has a Wii,A king sized bed and a bear as big as me sitting on the bed.Of course they go in as they please
They know if the door is closed they have to knock but if it's open they can come in and out when we're in there.
If the door is open, yes they can come in. It's not a free for all in there though. I don't allow them to rummage through our things or anything like that. My parents were the complete opposite. I still won't go in their room with out being asked to.
They are only allowed in there when we are. They are 3 and 1 and could get hurt.
I only close my door because the dogs sleep in our room, and I don't want them running amok while we sleep. During the day my door is always open. He usually knocks now, unless he's sick, then he'll just come in. I just feel I should be available if my child needs me, and he should feel I am. My parents always were. We were never chased out or expected to announce ourselves if we needed them and they were in their room.
We don't need him to stay out for "us time" though, he is with my parents or sister every weekend, and we have our time alone then.
Doesn't really matter with us. The door is open most of the time and if it's not, we lock it. But that's usually only when DSS is over and I have to change my clothes or shower.
