Its good that children play somewhere near by anyway so you can see him, ,its also a pity the landlord wont allow you to paint the walls .Put the toys in a box in one room and keep putting them back , its getting warm now take him out to parks , play some outside games with him,time flies he will soon be old enough to understand 'No' better ..good luck ,parenting is a lot of fun LOL
It seems silly to wallpaper this room right now. This child is going to tear the wallpaper down while he's in there and you aren't looking.
Save the wallpaper until you move out, and pay for that room to be papered again. No sense in doing it now.
Yeah, you've both got a good point. Thank you! :-)
margypops; it's just coming into winter here - we're from New Zealand :-)
lol lol well I guess its too cold then ...so how is the wall paper tearing going ...How about hanging up a big board on the walls see if he will draw instead or a chalk board ..
It is! We still get out and about though :-)
I've put his cot back into place (trusting him) and he hasn't ripped any but I've since found a peice of paper in huis room and havn't seen where it's from... hoping it's not a new strip strip of wall!
My partner and master Ollie were watching tv last night and he saw something about people re-wallpapering their walls and so of course he saw them taking it off. (Grumbling looks at my man at this point) but he just pointed "Uh, uh uhhh" at them. (Obviously telling them off. )So we told him, that's right, it is naughty to do it but that man's allowed to. His mummy lets him etc etc. So hoping he's learning as he's getting a bit older now!
Have tried to put things over the patches. I've put a blanket over the gap and around the cot area but he's just pulling the blanket down. Tried with a smaller blanket, over just the area and it stopped him until he realised that was his old bassinet blanket and decided to show me the pictures on it, I wasn't in his room at the time and he had kindly bought it out *Sigh*
My almost 5 year old keeps ripping the wall paper off her walls everyday. She won't stop even though she's being punished for it. I don't know what to do.
