My 6 year old has this habit of flying through the door when I'm going to the bathroom. The thing is is that our front door FACES the bathroom.
I finally lost it on her today.
Do your kids do that?

Nikki, my son is the same, has no issues with climbing over me while I'm on the toilet but will lock me out while he goes

I haven't been to the toilet alone in 2 years. Ironically my daughter likes complete privacy when using the toilet!

I don't shut the door anymore, they always come in any way. I normally get one of them trying to sit on my knee or will follow me in saying mummy whats you doing.
Hubbys just as bad though. If I need a wee in the middle of a conversation he won't leave me to go he follows me in still talking. Sometimes I have 3 pairs of eyes on me

99% of the time we don't shut the bathroom door unless we have people over, so... nope, no barging in. ;)

My son can be blissfully playing in the other room without a need of me whatsoever. As soon as I sit, he needs me, if only to find out where I am. He's 7! Barging in, not so much anymore, but we have held conversations through the door.

All 6 of my kids will barge into the bathroom while im there to ask me questions or need something.

My older one does but she's 2.5 so I assume she doesn't know any better. She's been getting lectured on it lately but now I have the baby and I take her with me all the time and Freja totally sees the double standard so...sigh.

I gave up shutting the door. I always use the master bath so I know they have to go out of their way through my room to come in. I figure one of these days they will get embarassed.

I think I can count the number of times I've gone to the bathroom alone in the last 4 years on one hand and have fingers left over. LOL. Yes, my son does this. Barges in AND leaves the door open. The door which faces directly into the living room. Which is lovely since we have 2 male roommates and his eldest brother (22) living with us.

My two boys and my husband barge in whenever they feel like it. My husband usually goes to the bathroom with the door open, he doesn't care. I can rarely lock the door because the boys will literally try to break it down (they are 3 and 5) lol.

I'm not sure how I'll be when they're 6. But right now, I'm use to it. Ben's 3 and Kira is 4. It doesn't bother me... yet.

The bathroom door is never shut unless there's company or someone is 'going #2'.

My son does this all the time, I can sneak out of the room while my kids are occupied doing something and it's like an alarm goes off that he needs to barge in! Now my daughter is starting too, it's so annoying because he gets mad if someone tries to go into the bathroom while he's using it!

All the time. Guaranteed, the minute I sit on the toilet Hayden is running in yelling "Mumma" and usually for no good reason.

I SHOULD lock it, she'd probably run right into it and fall down.
