Today, I was babysitting. As I went to leave the bathroom, someone grabbed the knob and pulled the door shut. I figured it was one of the kids and told them to knock it off. A second later, the grip let off. There was no one there and the kids were still asleep. I don't know what to think. FML

My dog has #18, she learned to grab them with her paws and open doors, and she then learned if she holds it her her mouth she can lock us in. she ways 215pounds and she's very lean, so she's all muscle. So a dog could do that, although I haven't heard of it before.

Was the door already closed and you just felt resistance when you tried to turn the knob yourself? It was probably just something loose in the mechanism.

Oops, just saw "pulled the door shut," so I'm assuming it was actually open or you would've said "held" or something.

Never mind, OP, it can only be ghosts. Burn the place down and salt the ashes, it's your only option now. Leave the kids, it's too late for them.

Sometimes doors can jam if the knob is turned, the curved lock doesnt go in, which makes the door stay shut, and when it loosens when you let go or put further force, it pulls in fully allowing the door to open.

I remember in my old house the door would feel like it was being held shut but really it was just a stupid push lock it scared the crap out of me first time I used it i got locked it lol :P

OP, sorry to say, but it sounds like a poltergeist. My h/s buddy has experienced events of objects being moved around @ his place. Yikes!
Supposedly, if you ask it out loud e.g., at the start of your shift, it will sometimes behave itself for a while - hopefully until you're gone - but I wouldn't do so within earshot of the kids. No sense in upsetting them.
