Re: Stop bad habits before they start...
So true! Especially with very young toddlers. They just. don't. get. it. that there's this special class of objects that they aren't supposed to touch. For them, EVERYTHING they see is a plaything or something to be investigated. Doesn't matter if it's your iPhone or your expensive china or a bottle of bleach or a piece of cat poop- in a toddler's eyes, it's interesting and needs to be explored.
