Don't know what to do Melinda Lutz 2 kids; Ohio 138 posts

My 3 1/2 yr old son has been waking up in the middle of the night sneaking into the kitchen and making the toddler version of scrambled eggs. It started back in September and at first we thought he was acting out because of the new sibling. We tried putting up baby gates when he goes to bed and he either climbs over them, loosens the gate enough to crawl under them, or knocks the gate down completely. He has also started adding milk, chocolate syrup, and regular syrup into the mix. I rent so I can't put a lock on my refrigerator and trust me that did come to mind. Anyone else out there know either how to stop it or why he's doing it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I rent & I use these. Id ask your landlord, theyre usually okay with stuff concerning the safety of children. They really kind of have to be.

Do you know where a good place to get one is I've looked around and have found toilet locks that outsmart me installing it but no fridge locks and I worry that he is too smart for his own good and will figure out how to undo it in a week.

I don't know what he's doing because he turns on the TV too. When we find the mess he confesses to it the next morning.

You could also put one of those door handle covers on his bedroom door.
