The best part is that they took the lamp to help them see in the dark... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

A feminist reaction. (Note: One poster is being very sarcastic, one or two others...I just don't know.)<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.msmagazine.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=5;t=003902" target="_blank">http://www.msmagazine.com/ubb/ultima...c;f=5;t=003902</a>

All right, Tame, what ARE you doing, hanging out at a feminist site? Inquiring minds want to know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

ah, i see.<br><br><br><br>
well, i can speak from experience when i say that good parents do sometimes lose track of their kids. it's not easy to be on top of everything they do, every moment.<br><br><br><br>
three days ago i was going pee, and my older son had dashed out into the backyard to play. we have a deck with a gate on it, and he's been reminded several times to always shut it behind him. but he often forgets. i was on the toilet and the baby was, i thought, playing happily in the living room. when i came out, the gate was open, the boy was in the backyard, and the baby was nowhere to be seen.<br><br><br><br>
luckily, she had just wandered around the corner of the townhouse complex, and i caught up with her within a few seconds. and my son got an earful.<br><br><br><br>
but this stuff happens. so don't be too quick to judge. those three year olds are fast as lightning and wily as all get out. the mom or dad may have noticed them missing only a few minutes after they got out of sight, and they could have gone plenty far by then, on those chubby, determined, speedy little legs.

I don't know... I can't imagine kids getting out the way those two did. And the things they did? My son has done the odd thing now and then, but nothing that destructive. It seems like those kids were used to acting up like that.

I have twin neices that by the age of 2, could open most child proof locks. (They would watch when their mother opened the lock and mimic her - she finally figured it out and would cover her hands with a towel).<br><br><br><br>
When they couldn't open the garage door because they were not tall enough to turn the handle and open the door, they figured out that if one stood on a chair and turned the knob, the other could then pry the door open.<br><br><br><br>
Yes, they escaped several times. Always found before any harm was done, but kids do these things.<br><br><br><br>
When you have kids, if the story ends without blood or permanent injury, it is funny.

well, maybe your son just hasn't had the opportunity...? if you've never lost track of him for any length of time, maybe he just didn't get his chance to "act up".<br><br><br><br>
besides, this hardly qualifies as 'destructive'. my kids have emptied drawers, bounced on beds, squeezed out all the toothpaste and dumped out all the shampoo and drawn on the walls. both of them. granted, never all in the same day; but they would have, i'm sure, had they been unattended in the house for several hours.<br><br><br><br>
that's not "acting out". that's being a normal, curious three year old.
