Just hoping someone might have some good tips or advice for dealing with my little runner.
Also, when you catch them how do you react?
DS is 2.5 and is a bandit for taking off at the worst possible moment. Last week I was trying to pay at a shop counter when he scarpered out the door and straight into the car park, glancing over his shoulder and giggling as I lumbered after him.
I can't leave the house without worrying he'll take off, even going to the park is stressful, unless we go to one that is fully fenced.
He hates the pram so we ditched it a while ago. Knowing how my child is, I will never again judge people who use kiddy leashes!
I'm trying to teach him that when mummy says stop and holds up her hand that means stand still. He uses the word stop in context but perhaps he just doesn't get it yet. Clearly he thinks it's funny and loves being chased 😩
