Q: I'm looking for ideas on how to separate toys in a shared room. Our boys (2 1/2 and 6 1/2) share a room and the younger is constantly getting into/ breaking the older one's toys and lego creations. I've thought about some lockers (IKEA PS red locker) or other closed storage for special items. Mostly I value the shared toy experience and cooperative play, but I do understand the desire to have some special things that are your own. Do you have any suggestions?

Editor: I can't recall this question coming up before which surprises me as it seems like it would be a very common problem. Readers, have you encountered this and come up with a good solution you can share with Michelle?
