Does your preteen/teen keep their door open or shut when they are in their room? If it's shut do you just go in or knock first?

He keeps his door shut most of the time he is in his room. Sometimes I just go in, sometimes I knock first. It just depends.

No closed doors at my house other than my own. There are two reasons behind it. Main reason is that she doesn't have a door, she has a curtain. Other reason is that I don't feel that kids should have closed doors until they're much older. I do allow her to close the curtain of course when she's changing and what not.

David doesn't have a door right now. Due to some past issues with him we removed the door from the door frame. He'll get it back eventually, but not yet. When he did have a door we did let him close it, but we would open it and check periodically to see what he was doing.

See, I can somewhat understand this, but I think even at that age (so long as they don't have boyfriends/girlfriends over) they deserve some privacy. I do, believe, though, that it is MY house and I am free to walk in whenever I would like to without notice if I see fit. There may be closed doors, but never locked doors. They can lock the doors in their own house. My son is still fairly young, though...only 12...so maybe when he's older and into the things that some teenagers get into, I may change my mind. lol

She closes it at time to get away from her sister. But I knock before I walk in..I feel she deserves privacy.
