Lock for French doors with dummy handles?

I have French doors going into a room that can be pushed open easily. These are dummy no turn knobs. What latch, at least child proof can be used? My wife works in there and the kids sometimes when she is on conference calls.

Doorstops pushed under each side by your wife.

A ball catch on the top leading edge of each door. And a couple strike plates on the jamb is the standard way of doing it.

I missed the part about child proof. You would need a floor bolt, but installed on the head of the door, not the floor.

A hook and eye would also work.
