    I know what you mean, as a former kindergarten teacher, it's the only way to keep order

    I agree. Start young to make a life long habit. But many homes built in last twenty years or so do not have designated entryways. My house has a 6 by10 entryway that is really just a pass through. We put five nails in a row about five feet off the floor . Another row about 2 feet lower for the younger kids to hang up their coats and backpacks. Now that kids are grown and out of the house. I plan on putting a bench under the coat rack. This will allow shoes to be changed.before water, mud, and other nasty stuff get tracked into the living room or up to the bedrooms.
