Living in a crowded home with three children and a husband can be challenging, but one mother decided to take a stand when her 15-year-old son repeatedly invaded his sister's privacy. Despite having his own bedroom and bathroom, the son would barge into his 16-year-old sister's room without knocking, even damaging the door in the process. When he caught her changing, the mother decided enough was enough and removed his bedroom door. Now, the son is begging for his door back, and the family is divided on whether the punishment was justified.
