Locking your toddler in his/her room?
October 11, 2012 at 12:22 AM

I got this from another group.  

If your almost 2 year old could climb out of his crib, and get out of the baby gates at night, is it ok to just lock him/her in their room, even with a baby monitor inside of their room? 

I don't do this, my kids usually stay in their beds at night, so I don't have this problem yet.

    no, it's not okay.  they make gates that screw into the doorframe, and are pretty unscalable.  there is always a better solution to be found than locking a small child in their room.
