My 7 year old is a runner. If you ever want to sit or anything at the beach or camping or restauratns ( unless you sandwich him) he takes off, sometimes up to a mile. He has no regard to safety and cars yet. If you say stop he thinks it is a game and goes faster. I have looked all over online for ideas on how to "train" this out of him and most people say they outgrow it. I don't know if I can last that long and am concerned for his safety. Any ideas?
