I don' t think you can ever keep a child completely safe. They have a habit of being able to get into any possible place, with or without locks. Ask any mother of a toddler and she will tell you how she has to run behind her child every minute of the day. No matter how hard you try, children still get hurt. I have seen my friend’s child. Once I had gone to her place to meet her, I saw her kid running inside the cupboard and locking herself inside it. Finally she locked her inside the cupboard and we had such a trouble to get her out of the cupboard. We all were scared that she should not suffocate inside the cupboard. The moral of the story is that parents of toddlers and small children should be very alert.

My son once ate some camphor balls because he thought they were mints. Luckily, my husband noticed it in time. We immediately rushed him to the hospital where they pumped his stomach out. I was so terrified when it happened. On top of that, the doctor shouted at us for not stopping him. I was so scared that I was fainted after I came to know that my child ate it. It is therefore necessary to take proper measures for safeguarding children from various hazards present in the house itself. Especially when the children are very small parents need to be extra-careful about their safety.

I don' t really think locks are of any use since the child can still somehow open the door. My sister' s daughter is very intelligent. When my sister punished her by locking up all her toys, she waited until my sister was out of sight and then went straight for the keys in the drawer. When she got them, she took the toys out. Kids are so intelligent, we can not even imagine. What children can think and do is completely out of our imagination. It is very necessary to take proper steps for safeguarding children. I do not know how mothers of two to three children take care of them. Taking care of on child is a tough time for me as I have to take care of safety issues for my child.
