    Default A lock on the outside of a kids bedroom door... Creepy right?

    The house we brought has little locks up the top of every door. It was like that when we moved in.

    The neighbors told us that the old lady who used to own it had an adult mentally handicapped son and had to lock all the doors of a night for his safety.

    We've just put a lock outside our kids door so instead of coming in to my bed (I have a newborn) I get up and settle them, they are 3 and 4 but still wake.

    I had a lock on my door as a child as I used to roam the house.

    It's that they are padlock type locks that makes it feel creepy to me. It would seem more usual if they were just knob locks or child safe locks etc...

    I think I watch too many serial killer type shows though....😉

    We are about to install latches on the outside of all the bedroom doors to keep our cheeky dd1 out of them unsupervised.

    My parents had a normal lock on my bedroom door when I was little. If I was naughty I went to my room and they locked it and I had to calm down before they let me out.
    Writing it down seems bad but it wasn't really .. I was about 10 so I knew I was being naughty and that was my punishment. But I soon learnt how topick the lock from the inside lol

    Anyway so yeh maybe they did that with their kids too?

    Creepy? No way. I have a child with autism and adhd and many times I've wanted to put a lock on his door. He would go crazy and sometimes he needed to go in his room for space and quiet time. I didn't get around putting a lock on his door but wanted to.
    Also I have a baby and i did put a lock on her door up high to stop my children from going in and waking her up.
    Sometimes it's safer to do this especially kids with special needs.
    Sometimes the parents need to do as peace of mind.
    And if there is a fire well I use my foot and kick the door down. Internal doors are so easy to kick down.
    This is my opinion anyway. These parents might of had children with disabilities

    My eldest had a lock on her room in a rental that I lived in it was excellent when she was having a wild tantrum and was sent to her room I'd use it to make her stay there until she calmed down. But it was only a little push in button nothing like what he op describes with padlocks! That's a bit over the top!
