Re: Toddler running from you?

I say before we go in someplace:

"Stay with mommy/hold mommies, if you run away, mommy will carry you/put you in cart/stoller"

I usually give one or two chances depending. Then when they've been warned they get contained either by carrying, cart, or stroller. I tell them I know they are mad, but they ran away, and you can only walk if you stay with mommy. They figure it out pretty quick. But they're toddlers, so they're never perfect.
