    Just to let you know my lock is like the one in the picture
    Those locks are among some of the worst. If your landlord is getting sick of this as well, it might be worth his while investing in a frame-embedded mortise lock, like in this photo:

    The receiving end of this lock is actually embedded in the frame of the door, and is significantly stronger than the couple of screws holding on what you have at the moment. I got locked out of my room a fortnight ago; I'm not weak, and I couldn't kick it in.

    On a separate note, your landlord should be issuing warnings to the offending kicker that he will get evicted if he continues to damage the property, as I imagine it's in the contract not to do so.
