A British woman has divided opinion on Mumsnet by asking fellow users if it is unreasonable to lock your front door even when you’re at home. She told users of the online forum her husband thought she was “overly cautious” to lock herself inside their home, which she said is in a leafy suburb. But one person who responded to the post said: “You’d have to be a bl**** idiot to not lock your door”.

The woman said her husband made her feel as if she was being a bit “obsessive”, writing in her post: “We live in a pleasant suburb in a peaceful neighbourhood where there is a very low crime rate”.
She added: “Occasionally over the years people have had someone walk in through their unlocked front door in broad daylight – even when they were in.”
Some Mumsnet users sided with the husband with one saying: “I don’t lock ours in the day, unless I’m leaving the (teen) children home alone”.
One person responded: “People who don’t lock their doors are very foolish”.

The same user claimed the number of Mumsnet threads on burglaries was a good enough reason to lock your door when indoors.
Another said: “I always lock my doors even if I am in, why take the risk?”
Another Mumsnet user said the advantages of taking a few seconds to lock your door outweighed the cons.
A fellow user agreed, saying: “I think it’s sensible. Someone could take my car keys and it could be hours before I realised the car had gone.”
