    My four and a half year old son is very smart but I feel he uses his smarts for more than what it is to be meant for. He has been escaping out of his room whether it be through the door of his bedroom and then the front door,or as of more recently hes been going through his window. We have put locks on all the doors and windows and even alarms that go off every time you open the door. On the windows in his bedroom you really cant put locks on it or the alarm to high as it will cause a fire hazard or the alarm will not go off.
    He is very quiet in doing all of this and i really wish i knew what to do. You ask him why or what provokes him to do this he says I dont know or because. Thats as far as it gets.
