My 4 year old especially- but he also has other issues. I think he might have ADHD, and he's either eating, moving furniture around my house, trying to eat, drawing on a wall or something, stealing food, or tearing something apart. He managed to get his hands on a jar of peanut butter today (I accidently left it out on the counter). He ate half of it, then smeared the rest of it in the carpet in his room with his tonka truck. So yeah. Locks. HUGE padlocks.

My kids have such an age gap that I kept things for the little ones separate from the older ones, and they would stay out of that.

Peanut butter? Oye, I bet that was a pain to get out!
