My husband put up plywood at Issacs favorite climbing spots so we got him stopped. Now he runs from me. He runs when he needs his diaper changed and when he needs to put on clothes. Now we have to work on that.

It's always something, huh? Glad you got the climbing stopped at least!

Landon is going through this phase right now. It is so frustrating! When he runs, I put him in a timeout for 2 minutes. He just hates time out so it really works for us. The next time he starts to run I mention the time out... most of the time he'll come right to me. Good luck with this one- it is a maddening phase for sure!

Glad you got it stopped, that will make the summer much easier for you. Good luck trying to get him to stop running from you. I would probably just ignore him and make him come to you :)
