2yr old peeling wallpaper! HELP

My 2-year-old has taken to peeling the wallpaper off the walls at night when she's been put to bed. We are renting, so it's not like we can just shrug and say "never mind!" We need to put a stop to this quickly! Especially as the house has the same paper throughout!

Help please!

You may want to consider putting something over the wallpaper so she cant reach it, or move her bed away from the wall. Its likely she is just bored while trying to fall asleep and it catches her eye. She wont understand why she cant do it, so just remind her that its not something that makes you happy, and you would rather she (insert other monotonous activity to put her to sleep here), like brushes dolly's hair, or pets kitty to put her to bed, or something. Just remove her as much as you can from the situation. The other option would be call your landlord and as them if its alright if you remove the wallpaper from that one room and explain the situation. Tell them you will put it up again when you move or that they can take it out of the security deposit...

Oh my... I dont blame her as I hate wallpaper LOL I am not sure what to do... Just explain its bad and not a good thing to do. You dont want to really switch her rooms or something just on account of this, but you did say there is paper throughout the house. Hmmm... hopefully its just a phase and she stops soon.
