    Omg! My mom just changed my bedroom door and she has 2 keys, one for me and one for her!?? I said: "give me the keys I could take care of it", she said no! she will take one of them! OMG then whats the point i locked the door?...tell me i'm over reacting but the idea someone has the key to my bedroom door is not my kind of idea of a hiding place/piece of mind from everything!!

    Have you considered having a chat with your mum about it to explain? If you tell her what you have told us then maybe she might consider giving you the spare key back?

    You're over reacting. If anything, there's a safety issue involved if you are the only keyholder.

    Why do you need to lock the door. I don't have a lock. Sure occasionally it would be good to keep the brother out from messing on the pc and Xbox, but other than that... no need for one. Just shut the door, and put things away. Your mum wouldn't go rooting through your stuff

    Why do you even need a lock in a family house?

    I just close my door and anyone who needs me knocks :s:

    Plus, like mentioned before, there is a safety aspect, i.e. if you loose both keys? or if they need to get in your room in an emergency?

    Seriously I don't see what the issue is.

    Has she given you any real/valid reasons as to why she wants your spare key?

    I don't even have a lock on my bedroom door; I can just trust my mother enough not to go snooping! Or rather, I trust the fact that she knows how big a ***** fit I'd have if she ever did.:ninja:

    You should speak to her, or change the lock.:yep:

    Actually, I think you'll find that it's technically her room.

    Apart from asking the question, why would anyone need to lock a door in a family home, you need to think about it from a practical point of view.

    If your mother has no access to your room, how is she supposed to make your bed, get your dirty washing, hoover and generally keep it fit for human habitation? Or are you going to do all those things?

    Secondly, what if you carry both keys around with you and you lose them? Wil you pay for the new door to be replaced afte you break down the old one?

    Thirdly, I don't know you, and I'm not making assumptions, but what if you are taking drugs, smoking etc and you have an overdose, or set the place on fire and no-one can get into your room to save you from dying?

    You should either negotiate a safe place for the spare key, or not bother locking the door.

    A lot of keys won't open a door if there is a key in the keyhole on the other side.

    Get together and put the spare key in a tin and both of you seal it (with wax or something). Then, she'll only be bothered to get to the key and going through the effort of breaking the seal when there's a real serious reason for her to get into your room. Also, you would know when it's happened.
    Thus, if there's a fire/safety issue, it's not that hard to open a wax-sealed tin, but she won't be arsed to do it every time she wants to peek at your underpants. :yep:

    My sister attempted suicide in her room, which was locked and she had the only key (mind you, she was the only person to lock her room or even have a key for her room). Took me a while to break it open but I succeeded before the ambulance arrived.
