Isn't this sentence wrong? "Zu Hause hat jedes Kind sein eigenes Zimmer" Isn't the verb supposed to be in the second place in a sentence? Why is it in third place here?

German is not a SVO-language (SVO = subject - verb - object) like English, although SVO is the most common word order for German statement sentences. German is a V2-language, which means verb at position 2.

it is not placed third in this sentence. it is placed second as it should be.
