Alarms and shut doors--seems so unatural to me.

I know--I have been one to suggest this to others....and completely understand the reasons for it..... It just seems so unnatural to have a family where bedroom doors are locked and alarms go off at night... But it is clear we might have to go that way...

In our house we usually have all the doors open at night. I cannot think of a time in my life where anyone slept with the doors shut. I have heard however that for Fire Safety this is better.... All the safety classes teach children to feel the door if is is hot and not to touch the knob... So I guess it is more normal for people to sleep with doors shut...

I just wonder don't kids this young have bad dreams and get scared with the doors shut all night? And what about bathroom and drinks in the middle of the night? How often do the alarms go off in the night for you Lucy?

Anyway--It would be nice to have my husband feel safe and go to bed dressed for me....and I suppose if we have to lock the door we will.... That is really going to tick Jeremiah off... but we have to protect him too at this point at three it is pretty sad I would rather change his diaper then deal with him being a target

Going to Low's so get a bedroom door lock....we have the alarms but have NOT been using them yet---except on the front door to keep Jeremiah in..... oh well.... Of course now that the subject is HOT again we can expect to go another round.
