YOUR bedroom off limits or no?
Curious how others approach this, as I can see that I’m going to have to.
if you have bio kids and step kids....is you and your spouses room open to the kids? As in to shower/use the bathroom and hang out in the bed if you are home and not home??
i think my DH and his ex lacked any boundaries and kids slept with them and bathed in their bathroom and seems like it was a family room. Let me add that this is one of the reasons they divorced....there was ZERO husband and wife dynamic.
My children rarely entered my bedroom when I was married to their father and definitely didn’t come in when I wasn’t home.
so fast forward...SD 11 will only use our toilet and shower. SD 16 just goes in our room with food and lays in our bed when we aren’t home. So over the last little while my bio kids are starting to follow suit. I came home from work to my bio did (11) and sd (16) in my bed with food and had been there all day...all lights on in my bathroom and closet and everything wide open.
this is a huge no for me. One because dh and I have a very busy sex life and plenty of things hidden and really not a bed that anyone should be in if you know what I mean. Haha Two because I have zero privacy already and my step kids being all up in my stuff makes me uncomfortable.
the kids have the entire second story of the house....apartment style with a little living room, 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom.....do I just lock my bedroom door when I go to work??? Or let it be. We have a large house and everyone seems to be in my room all the time
