Last week, our three-year-old son locked himself inside the house while Anand and I are working in our front yard. We didn’t realize that until we are headed inside and we saw the garage door locked but, that should be less than 5 minutes he headed into the garage. Our first concern was, was he in the garage? It was a very hot day and he usually cannot open the door that leads to the house. Soon, we went around the house and called for him from the backyard, for which he responded. We were at least relived he is inside the house and not locked in the garage. We talked to him but couldn’t get him to open the dead bolt. Out of the three doors that lead to the house, he somehow communicated and opened one of them and got us inside, for which we were very proud he could do it.
The next day, we thought we should have a backup plan to get inside the house when we are ever in a situation like locking ourselves out with nothing in our hands at that moment, no matter whose mistake it is. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
