o recently my 5 year old had been sneaking into the kitchen at night and early mornings and taking food to his room and eating it.I mean candy chips all of it. He sticks the wrappers in his closet. This has got to stop. Time outs dont work and I'm at my wits end. I moved everything tootop cabinets and now he is climbing up. 

Help please!

You may need to get  a locking  file cabinet to  keep the junk food in. And keep that in your room.   Then  buy  fruit  for him to snack on.

I was going to suggest a lock too. My pantry has a lock (it did when we moved in) and its awesome to keep dd out of it.

I had child proof your locks he figured them out. It doesn't seem to be about eating it cause sometimes he hides parts of food. His room smells awful. I hate it cause
