My 4 year old keeps escaping. We have chain locks on the door but he can climb on chairs and unlock them. He has even broken a window in his room while I wastaking a shower and climbed out! We took all of his toys away as punishment and fun activities until he could prove to us he was good but once he got his toys back a couple days after he was really good for a couple weeks and he back to the same thing! I can't turn my back without him tring to escape!

I know this sounds silly , but my nephew was an "escapee" also , so my sister took him to the police station and had a police officer talk to him about the dangers of someone stealing him and how he would be dissapoibted in him if he didn't listen to his mommy. It worked like a charm. For some reason little boys are fascinated by police officers! I would be very careful to keep an eye on him bc in all seriousness this could be a very scary situation and would limit showers and any activities unless he's asleep or another adult is present. I would tell him if he does it again then he will start losing toys for good.
