    Oh my goodness I would simply not spend another moment in that house until that door is secure. My lordy, you are lucky your boys are still alive. I want to cry just thinking about it! Far out.

    Head off to the local hardware shop and buy a cheap latch or patio bolt and attach it up high. Surely that will solve the issue? They can easily be removed if there is a need to in the future.

    I agree which everyone else. They are too little to understand, so you need to either get a latch for the door or keep it locked. Put a note on it if you have to!

    Either that or get a safety gate if there is a passage to the door. That would be another easy fix too.

    Wow yeah I agree with everyone else here. My first thought would be to fix the door not educate my children. They are too little to understand. Put your foot down for your children's safety.

    Sounds like you're talking about the adults here.

    This is what we did. We have a door that is easily opened from the inside and DP didn't want to use the chain-latch because DD might get her fingers caught if she tries opening the door. So we put a baby-proof door fastening high up on the door and door frame.

    It's strong enough to stop a two year old from opening the door. Once DP accidentally left it latched when I came home and I couldn't get his attention from upstairs to open it. I really had to shove the door hard a number of times to get it open, so it's not adult-proof but I'm convinced a small child wouldn't be able to pull it open.

    Just smack them hard and calmly tell them they will get ten if they ever do it again. This is life and death - no time for sticker charts and trying to explain how bad brain injuries are. They may not understand the road risk, but they understand simple consequences. they are not babies any more - 3 and 4 is past time to simply rely on barriers for safety. (A 4yo can get over a pool fence if they want to.)

    What would have happened if someone grabbed them instead of stopping to help them?
    Concentrate on the million-times higher risk of being hit by a vehicle, or causing an accident.

    10 hits??? Wow. Child abuse much. You can go about it other ways without using violence. Yes it is violence when it is 'hard' and as many times as you said. Infact ILLEGAL!!!!

    Op. I agree with the others, get a lock up high and if your dad cracks it then you need to explain the seriousness to HIM and why it is imperative to have said lock on door.

    Wtf? That's terrible advice. There are plenty of alternatives to abusing your kids... Such as pulling your finger out and putting a damn lock on the door!
