ok moms im irritated and need some advice....

my son is 2. we baby proofed our house so there are child proof door knobs on EVERY door. well-he has learned to open the doors anyway. and wont stay out of my room! he has his own room with too many toys but he insists on going and playing on my bed! my question is-how do you keep them from opening doors once theyve figured out how to work the child proof door knobs?? any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance!

  • Hook and eye latches are very inexpensive and easy to install up high on the doors

  • Tie a string from one door knob to the other LMAO.. Or you can just let him play in your room.

  • Leadshoes, just kidding, Home Depot and Lowes have a hook and latch that has a spring on it that has to be held open to unlatch. It worked for us until the kids were about 5-6 and their fine motor skills were more developed in their hands. We also put it up high

  • Hook and latch is the way to go. Install it up high. Baby gates are great too.
