Hi everyone,

I have a ten year old son who often locks the study room when he is using my computer. When asked why, he only tells me that he accidentally locked it. The door knob does not actually get "accidentally" locked because you need to intentionally lock it up. SO, it is quite obvious that he did it on purpose.

My friends say that this is the age when children or pre-teens ask for private time or seek it. Do you think that I should give him his private time, whether he ask it or not? or should I still let him know that I still have every right to know everything he does or everything about him?

Need some advices.
