  • not really, maybe she just likes playing with the door. Or maybe she saw you do it with the front door or something and thinks its the right thing to do.

  • I have a 3yr old and he sometimes does this. I don't think it's odd.

  • Not in the least my daughter has been doing that for a while now, she has a thing with closing doors and locking them, its just a quirk

  • Do you and/or your SO do that when you go into the bathroom? She may be mimicing you.

    I actually taught my son to lock and unlock doors for this very reason.

  • I would be worried that she would lock herself in a room and not be able to get out.
