I'm stealing this from another forum.
When do you lock your doors? All the time? Only when you leave the house?
Front door: Always
Back door: Usually
The front door has a lever handle that we can't keep child proofed. Cody is obsessed with trying to open the door. It is always locked. It also has a key fob lock which only requires touching the metal surface on the key to the metal surface of the lock. Cody knows how this works and is determined to unlock the door himself. He practices every time he gets my keys. Luckily he is juuuust barely too short to reach the metal plate at the right angle. We need to move ASAP.
An unlocked back door means there's a dog outside, otherwise it is locked.

Our front door is always locked but that back door and side door are usually unlocked if we are home, until around the time it starts to get dark/later we usually close the blinds and lock the doors. The back door is locked if the dog is outside because she knows how to open it. And the garage door is not locked until we go to sleep since we just close the garage door itself (but I mean the interior door is not locked until bed).
There was apparently a home burglarized yesterday in our general area so I might be more cautious and keep doors locked although we think based on the information/rumors going around that it was a personal thing with that house.
Our front door is always locked, because it locks when you close it. Our back door is pretty much never locked, but it's sliding and heavy and Lucia cannot open it. If we just leave the sliding screen door closed, she can open it, so we only do that when we know we are paying close attention.
I grew up in a small town, and we didn't even have keys to our house. Our doors were never locked.

The back door is always locked and 90%of the time, there's a pin in the top. We have a pool and DD thinks she can swim all by herself. Obviously, its not locked if we are in the backyard.
The front door is locked 50% of day time, always locked at night. We live in a small town and I'm really not worried. We also have a large dog that causes a ruckus anytime someone comes up our driveway, even if its DH. Most people are scared of her because she's loud and a pitbull. If the just the front screen door is closed, its locked so that DD doesn't get it open.
