plugs & sockets

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

my 2 yr old is just obsessed with them!!!! i have socket covers, but things that are plugged he wanted to pull them out and play with them, he hates the vaccum but as soon as i have it unplugged he wants the plug, he wants to put them in his mouth as well, he likes to then pull them out and try to play with sockets how do i get him not interested in them before he gets shocked!!! ahhh

So is my 18 mo old daughter. Get the outlet covers that slide over when a plug is pulled out. Then, at least if her pulls out your vacuum plug, he can't shock himself by putting it back in.

my son was like that and i just tried the shock treatment.Whenever he went near them i would just shout oh my god really loud when he wasnt expecting it it work after a few tries.

i had the same problem with my son. i had to keep and eye on him at all times. then i started putting stuff in front of them so he couldnt get to them. something easy for me to move so when i needed to get to them i could. about a year ago he somehow got to one and got shocked (nothing to bad). now he wont even walk near them.

if he is 2 try to explain to him that he will get hurt, maybe let him do it to get his obsession over with, the putting a plug in his mouth not playing with the socket
