  • Put a baby gate up in the doorway of his room. Hopefully he can't climb it.

  • put an alarm on for yourself and get up before him
    use a baby monitor so you can hear him

  • Put something in front of his door that will make a sound when he opens it. Like a large empty mason jar, or something with bells all over it.

  • Do as they do in the store, get some bells and put them on his door so when it opens, you can hear it. :-) And 3 is old enough to know that he needs to wake you up or stay in his room.

  • I have a child proof door knob thing on my daughters door. She can't open that.

  • get your lazy ass out of bed befor he does, and to the lady who put a child proof cap on her three year olds door that is stupid, she cant get out if something were wrong.

  • Have you tried using a baby gate or two

  • Ok, first please don't put a child proof cap on the door that is so dangerous what if he were sick and needed you or something else was wrong.
    Have you told him to come and get you when he wakes up? I know my son (3yo) comes straight to my room and tells me momma get up sometimes he has to tell me a couple times because I have a 17 month old who is teething and up a lot at night anyway we say good morning and I love you and I carry him to the couch and get him something to drink and a breakfast bar to tide him over while I get coffee going & go to the bathroom & my dd usually wakes up.
    If he won't come and get you then for sure put a bell on his door...I'm not sure about the gates because again what if he is sick...can you hear him from your room if he were yelling for you or throwing up...if so then try the gates...not a big fan but you also need to keep him safe. I would try a bell or alarm on the door first. Good luck

  • mine did the same thing! i started noticing it was happening right after his dad went to work.....but see my son would take an entire bottle of ketchup and dump it on the carpet,then he would sit and eat the ketchup,he would get the peanut butter out and make a peanut butter sandwich by himself.....he did this just about everyday! and everyday it was something different on the floor.....the one day he took a cigarette pack and broke all 20 ciggs into tiny pieces then took the tabacco and made piles out of it....he did all of this out of anger towards his sons dad was never really there for him,and when he was there he didnt pay attention to my son....he would yell at him for being in the way of the t.v.,or yell at him because he made a mess with the toys in his own room,or because he wanted to watch a movie in his room but daddy wouldnt do it...all he wanted was attention from his dad because daddy wasnt there
