Supernanny | How to Stop Your Runaway Toddler

By Supernanny


Once your toddler or child can walk for any length of time, the prospect of them running off unsupervised can cause real anxiety. Racing away on their own can quickly become a game for the child… and one worth playing as it usually ends with them getting a lot of attention. Your little one uses their newfound ability to walk as a way of establishing independence from you. At this stage of their development, it’s important that you make it plain that running away is unacceptable behaviour. Tips to keep them close: Begin by explaining that you’re going on a fun walk and that your child will be free to walk by your side so long as they understand that when you raise your hand and say ‘stop’, they must stand still and return to your side. Engage your child in conversation the moment you’re out of the door; ask questions, see if they know which way to go next and can tell you what to do when approaching a road. If your child runs ahead, hold up your hand and say ‘stop’. Praise them if they stay where they are waiting for you to catch up or, better yet, they return to your side. Start walking again, this time allowing your child to get a bit further away before you say stop. Build up their independence on your route in this way, praising them every time they react properly to your ‘stop’ command. If your child doesn’t stop, tell them they must hold either your hand or the handle of the buggy for a set time - three or four minutes - and then start the technique over again. If your child's obedient when you're out and about, that not only keeps them much safer, it gives you greater peace of mind and helps to establish a bond of trust between you. ▶ SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE 🔔 : ▶ WATCH MORE TERRIBLE TANTRUMS! 😡 : ▶ SUPERNANNY MOMENTS WE LOVE THE MOST 💙 : We hope you loved this video! 🤗 Please check out our latest videos ▶️ Supernanny | Mom Totally Loses It At Supernanny Over Nap Times : ▶️ Supernanny | 4yr Old Thinks He Can Mess With Supernanny : Supernanny is here to tackle tantrums, fights and naughty kids all over the world!
