As a child I was locked in my room frequently.
It has had a lasting affect on me. I do not close ANY doors in my home & there are no locks on any interior doors.
My parents locked me in there when I was "bothering them" by throwing a tantrum or misbehaving.
A child's room should be a happy/safe place where they want to be and sleep and play.
If you're locking your child in their room - now you know...it will leave a lasting affect.
