At a recent toddler + 1 class, mum was expressing her frustration with her toddler wanting to walk over sitting in the pram…. leading to a toddler running loose!
P2B suggested attaching a ribbon to the pram for the toddler to hold when walking. This gives the toddler responsibility, some ownership and keeps them next to the pram. Everyone wins!
Boundaries need to be set if and when they let go … but as you can see, Master L is loving his independence.
