@Desi and that proves how good a mum you are stepping outside and having time to yourself ive started to ignore tempers or if he does something i say no in a loud voice x
I will say it, a leash. Put it on tell him that your job is to keep him safe and until he can listen to the ones that love him very much and stay close. He has to wear it. I know, you think me cruel, I personally see this as black and white. Either, you keep telling them, and they dont listen, and maybe one day, when you are extra stretched out for your attention, little one will wander off and... god forbid. The other option, put a leash on them to keep them close and help the child to understand self-control and to stay in a safe proximity. The toddler understands to some extent, tone especially. They will do what they want and have no understanding of the consequences of their actions, and everything is new and exciting. Great! Let's keep the extra roudy ones wrangled, I mean, it isn't like you hog tied em! The bright side is you only have to use it to train for a short period, use freedom of the leash to encourage them to be free of it by asking them to promise to stay close and not run off.
Read No Bad Kids. It’s a very helpful book!
Buy a backpack with reins on it. Safety first at least he cant run too far
