    kid's these days are smart but you as well can remember all the things you have done around age 2 or 3 as well . young children need to be watched and single mom's remember your kid also is watching you as well. to tell you story in school when they are older and worse yet married couple doing things as well/

    Kids these days are becoming so smart at an early age, my daughter is 2yrs old also and I leave on the 2nd floor of an apartment and my daughter knows how to unlock and open the door, it's dangerous but these kids are learning. I wasn't able to put a new lock on the door so say the landlord but I had to start putting gates up in the halls......

    At least he didn't get his toes chewed off.

    I have a 4yr old and he knows that he is not supposed to touch the door. I quite simply dont understand how so many people are like my child can open the door and go out. Then put a chain on the door out of the childs reach. These parents are giving there children entirely too much freedom and teaching them how to open deadbolts at an age when they have to reason to be taught these things. And even if your child is smart enough to figure it out you have to teach them its not okay to go outside alone.

    Hey mom's and dad's there are special handles for doors that worked for our family. You can find them at any retail store. (and they work till they are about 4) You have to grab the handle just right or it will not open. (hard for tiny hands) We had that problem with our three door's. Thank God I was awake and heard her.

    I'm glad he is safe !!! I know how fast kids can slip away, mom could have been in the bathroom for 2 minutes and he took off. At least he went next door, not across the street!!! If you don't know how fast toddlers can move you don't have one or you are to old to remember. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Or, judge not lest thee be judged.

    havent thought of that one! being a parent of toddlers is a scary thing, you never know what theyre going to do and you have to have your eyes on them all the time. i have three toddlers, its a job! i wear myself out making sure they are safe, but they still manage to get into something or another. so if this two yr old comes from a family of several little kids, i might see how it could happen. if hes the only one, i would suggest that those parents take greater measures in taking care of their kid!

    was social services called for improper supervision on behalf of the parents?

    I dont mean to judge and I dont know the circumstances, but where were the parents of this child???? How does a 2yr old get out of the house and wonder off????

    Perhaps the grandparents wanted the parents to learn a lesson. The parents need to learn how to keep an eye on the baby. Maybe they will be more careful from now on. When mine were toddlers one of them learned to unlock the kitchen door and walk out of the house. We changed the lock to a keyed dead bolt and kept it locked at all times. Just a few dollars to change the lock and a little diligence to make sure that we always locked the keyed dead bolt and she was safe inside the house instead of wandering outside.
