When a child becomes a teenager, it's natural for them to desire more privacy and independence. However, a father's attempt to set boundaries for his son's privacy has caused a rift in his marriage. Despite his son's complaints about his mother barging into his room without knocking, the mother refuses to respect his privacy. The father has tried to reason with her, but she sees no issue with her behavior and doesn't want to change. This has led the son to take matters into his own hands and get a lock for his door. The mother sees the lock as a sign of secrecy, but the father argues that it's about respecting his son's privacy. The situation has caused tension in the family, with the mother refusing to speak to the father and son until the lock is removed. Was the father wrong to support his son's desire for privacy?
