grantredpath. I am not sure Lihanor 72 means leaving a 3 year old in a caravan all alone as of course that would be illegal. I think Lihanor 72 might mean leaving the 3 year old in say the bedroom when they are say in the lounge and his wife would feel more secure if there was a lock on the bedroom window.I think that might be dangerous if you lock a window as well as making access more difficult it also makes getting getting out in say a fire more difficult.If I am understanding the concern correctly maybe a baby monitor in the van would work for his wife.

No she would not be alone my surname is not the edit At the moment she sleeps in our bed yes I know should never do but she has already during the day playing opened her bedroom window so now mummy won't have her in her bedroom alone and nor would I.

You could fit a window restrictor, this will prevent the window from being opened more than a couple of inches. But still allow egress in the event of a fire.
