She could get into the pantry and fridge though so thats how I taught her not to touch. She is over 2 now and the kitche is still in lockdown

we keep ours down still, i agree they need to learn not to touch. It worked for our 2 daughters in no time, our gorgeous son is really pushing the boundries though smile

I find the biggest problem with touching for my kids is when they are outside the home.
I do think that kids learn fast in there own home what they can and carnt touch.
lol Miss Polly I think that all boys are like that. DS learnt at about 20 months how to open all the different locks we have
My busy house
I would never forgive myself if an inquisitive little rugrat got into the chemical gear.
Some breakables were put up some were left down....
The more expensive stuff was put up high, just incase!

i've decided that i'm only going to lock/remove harmful stuff and teach her about what she can and can not touch.
my BIL's kids had everything blocked off from them (including a playpen fence around the tv unit!!) and now when they go to other peoples places they get into EVERYTHING!! when they come here BIL moves all our stuff and i hate it!!! so i just dont want to have to do that, i want her to understand when we go some where no means no she cant touch.
Also I haven't found any problems when we are out, he listens to me when I say no, I would just rather when we are at home that I know that I don't have to watch him every 5 seconds so he doesn't get into something that he shouldn't or break something.
Why should a really young child be punished for the mistake of an adult in leaving something that can be broken within reach of the child.
As they get older and are able to understand then fair enough but until that time why make things difficult for yourself and for them?
