I am tempted to put a lock on the outside of my kids' door to keep them from getting into stuff. My room and theirs is connected by a door with no lock but I would lock my door from the inside. So they can go in between the two rooms. They keep getting into stuff and try to go outside in the middle of the night and when I take a shower. I don't want to keep them locked in their room all day just at night so I can hear them when they try to unlock my door and be able to listen out for them better when I am in the shower.
And if you want to know we spend most of our time downstairs or outside during the day and usually only go upstairs to sleep or for time out.
Someone told me this was child abuse and not to do it cause CPS could be called on me. Is this really child abuse and does this make me a bad parent for thinking of doing this?

I have a CPS case and my kid's room has a lock on it. It doesn't connect to any other room. It is there to keep my 2 year old out while my 11 month old is sleeping. I don't know if my case worker saw it but if he did he didn't say anything.
