When Trinity was about two and a half years old, she wanted a lot of freedom. Still do, but not to that extent. My burden of keeping Miss T in sight wasn't easy, I learned how to apply tough love in Tackling My Daughter.
She is currently at the stage of asking for help, even if she isn't in need of help. She has the need to be close by, not like before when she couldn't wait to get rid of my hand.
The only way to keep Miss T at bay then was strapped up in a harness. We received it for Christmas and I had no idea what it was for, not until 11 months later when Miss T decided she needed to explore everything.
We were keeping scores to see how many times she would try to run-off. If she can walk and be independently attached, she was getting great reports.
At times, her urge to run was so strong that she took us with her. Needless to say, since she turned three the harness is broken and so has the habit. We all can relax now, because Miss T doesn't need it anymore.
Thanks for stopping by today.
