Perhaps one of the 9 grandchildren is bumping the window switch.

Are all doors activating, or just one in particular? One thing you might try is pulling the battery from the remote (if you have remote locks) in case the button on the remote is stuck down.

The contacts have likely become flattened due to use over time. If you gently pry them up a little you will get back the pre-load that keeps them in contact.
