It is useful to teach toddlers to open a door, a skill that many young toddlers are eager to learn. A child's ability to open doors depends on the size and strength of her hands as well as the style of doorknobs in the house. Some toddlers will understand that they are not to open doors without an adult. Many will not grasp this concept, so it is best to use covers over the doorknobs sold by child safety companies. These covers will prevent children from opening doors to potential dangers, such as the bathroom, while maintaining access for adults.
