that must your little rascal in the pic. he looks a bit older. when my boy was younger, 1-2yrs old, he was quite a handful & runs around the place. i bought this little green frog bag from kiddy palace & make him wear it for outdoor. there's a 'leash' attached to it so he cant go far & i can concentrate on shopping. it's no laughing matter if i really lose him. now he's older, 3yrs old, it's difficult to keep him under control, very active. all i can do is repeated command. it works for daddy to use strict stern voice, look him in the eye & said "it's not acceptable. you must not do it again. do you understand?"
doesnt work so well with me cos i'm the softie & he knows.
well, basically we repeat & repeat & now he finally understands.....so good luck to you.
just happen to notice, your boy is ethan? my active & daring boy is ethan too. perhaps the name we give indicate something
