Welcome to Ask Mama! This is where either, YOU ask me a question to ask the rest of the world or I’ll be asking you a question about one of my kids! I need help too Mama’s! Please help answer these questions by commenting below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your question be the next question! Okay, my turn!
Okay, so I’ve heard from moms that their child runs and falls all the time, climbs in furniture, stands on chairs and does all sorts of gymnastic type activities when they should clearly NOT be doing them! Well, my daughter is one of those “wild” children. I had no clue what a challenge this could be! Just this week, she has fallen down a slide (because she thought she could go down face first apparently), fell of the sofa (right on her little head) and fell off her chair. It makes me feel like a “horrible” mother for not catching her. Even though I clearly say, “NO! NO! NO! SIT DOWN!” this means stand or better yet, RUN!
I placed her in her crib for a “break” and I saw she put her leg to the top and is now trying to climb over her crib! Where is there a safe place?! How do YOU handle a gymnastic child? Being 21-months, this is a challenge for me! Any suggestions Moms?
