Dumping liquids!!!

Keshia - posted on 09/16/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My almost 3 year old has developed a bad habit of dumping liquids out in the floor and adding to the pile with blankets and other things! Dish soap and bubbles seem to be her famous pick. Does anyone have another way to approach the situation we have tried time out spankings and have even made her help clean the mess up! Nothing has worked

Unfortunately, I am afraid it is the age. There isn't much you can do. I just baby gate everything. I have a 2 1/2 yr old and she is just like your little mess maker. Mine can get in serious trouble. The link below is a prime example of my mess maker. If your little isn't listening then I would suggest keeping all of that out of her reach until she can comprehend the concept. There is no reason to keep punishing her if the punishment is not working. Maybe just tell her why she should play with it. Tell her she can get hurt, slip, or get soap in her eyes and that would hurt really bad.
