So I was watching an episode of Super Nanny the other night and supposedly the couple that she was helping keep locks on the outside of their children's bedroom doors. She outright pointed it out as one of the things they are doing wrong as parents.
What is your opinion on this? Do you think there is a positive side to doing this? Or is it completely wrong and abusive? Do you think it is right or wrong to lock children in their rooms?
Personally, I think it is wrong. A child should not be locked in their room. Even if it is only at night, so they stay in there and not cause trouble. I wouldn't say it is 100% abusive, but it can be if the child needs to use the bathroom or hasn't eaten.
