I love my child.....but right now I'd love to kick him square in the butt.

I owe my roommate a frigging door because my 6yo pulled a dumb move. Their pantry door locks from the outside. I was in grabbing things to make lunch and he decided to lock it, run in, and slam the gods forsaken door. There is no AC in there, nothing to drink, and my phone was in the living room.

After about an hour of trying anything and everything I could, I gave up and broke the door. Nearly broke my ankle in the process.

I was in such a good mood today too. :/

Ok this is confusing
why could you not unlock it and why could he not unlock it? Were you locked in or was he? How do you plan to teach him that this was not a good thing to do?

I would have put my child in a time out for locking me in the pantry and to cancel all plans to.

My 6 yo would be in a world of trouble for pulling that stupid trick.

Your 6 year old didn't come back to let you out when you yelled? What discipline did you use?

So he locked it, took a run up and then slammed it? Either way, his life would be over. You would buy the door yes. But he would be doing EVERY bit of housework alongside you until he earned the price of the door.

I had to read it twice, but I think they were both locked in.  She was in there and then he managed to lock the door on his way in.  At least I think that's what she's saying.

He is 6?! That's a little old to be doing something like that.

It locks from the outside. We were both in the pantry. And he's already been disciplined for it.
