Question Slamming Door

I have a situation where our home is in a high wind area and whenever we come in the garage door the interior door from the laundry room to the living room slams with such force my child was seriously injured. We have looked at that plans for our house which called out for 3 vents in the garage which were never installed. Given the pressure system that has been created, would installing the vents in the garage alleviate or diminish the pressure system and prevent the door from slamming?

It should help or cure the problem. However you really need to discuss this with a contractor to be certain.
