    Yes. Respond to a child safety issue with violence and the threat of even more violence. A 3 year old will totally respond well to that.
    Seriously OP, just get a door lock. By all means start teaching road safety too, but ignore the above, I urge you. Smacking and threatening will not work. To be blunt, do you want to be explaining to police that the reason your kids were on the road was because the door wasn't adequate and saying "But I did smack them and threaten to give them ten more?!"
    You have a responsibility to provide a safe environment. Get the chain lock and the baby gate, it will do wonders for your peace of mind and keep your babies safe

    I agree that smacking is the answer - smack each adult that leaves the door unlocked/doesn't allow for better lock installation and calmly tell them they will get 10 more if they do it again.

    Wow violence is definitely not the answer, get a lock or get a door stop and put it at the front and use the back door for access.

    If there was an intended pool outside and they ran the risk of drowning would you be the same and trying to explain the situation to them? That's just as dangerous as them getting onto the road. They are little children you need to fix the problem for them not make them understand how serious it is. Sure teach them time about roads but don't expect it to happen overnight.

    Yes, lets teach kids how to behave by beating the crap out of them. Great parenting.....

    Better yet, slam their head in the door!

    That's a bit sick, invoking the image of someone beaten so badly they lose bowel control. You know what will actually do that, and a lot worse? being hit by a car.

    How about trying an intelligent argument instead of exagerating any opinion you disagree with, to ridicule it? I know discipline can be an emotional topic, but lets try to be civil. (I'd really better keep away from the circumcision forum!)

    I think after snaking a child 10 times they may loose bowel control
