Re: Toddler running from you?

I did this with DD eating snow outside - right before nap I would get her uber excited about a trip to the park, head outside and linger near a snow bank til she took the bait, then right back in while she tantrum-ed. A couple days of that and she was cured of snow-eating
You just made me feel better about myself. I did this to ds two days ago, he likes to run from me when we go outside. He always goes toward the street (not busy but still) so we talked, I warned, he ran, we went in for nap time. Hopefully it works!
