I Need to Leave, But My Child Says “No.”

On today’s episode, we answer a question from Emily. She wants to know how to handle situations where she has to leave, but her 2 1/2 year old daughter doesn’t want to come with her. She’s been having to force her child to come and wants to know if there are other solutions that might work before needing to get to that point.

I offer a few different solutions and scripts for this challenge and also offer a more productive way to handle having to put the child in the car should these other strategies not work. And as extra clarification, the final step of having to put them in the car yourself will probably only occur less than 10% of the time, trending toward zero as the child gets older.
