Why is a teen allowed privacy, but a parent isn't allowed that? Seriously.
If my child doesn't respect my wishes for privacy by entering my room without permission,, then you betcha I'm installing a lock on my door.
I wouldn't enter their rooms without permission and I expect the same. If I can't get that same respect, then my door will get LOCKED. If my kids have a right to privacy I bloody well do too.
And I believe a teenager can grasp the reasoning behind that
In a house, where everyone lives together, their bedroom is the only place they can have as any form of private space. Wanting PRIVACY is totally different than hiding stuff.
Some kids need a little bit of help in regards to learning about other peoples privacy. Especially ones who are challanged with mental illness such as bi-polar.
