My 12 month old is determined to turn the television channels on the tv. she walks up to them and just starts flicking the channels. For the last week i've been saying "no touch, mommies." or just "No touch" sometimes loudly, sometimes more softly. I often get up and change the channel back to 3 and redirect her to a toy away from the tv. however it unfortunatly is turning into a game. I say "No touch!" start to get up and redirect her and fix the television, and she starts giggling and trying to hit the televisions buttons faster until i get to her. I"m unsure of how to deal with this differently. this is how i handled the CO2 detector pluged in the wall and (knock on wood) she hasn't bothered with it. I've even tried piling her toys infront of the telivision to slow her down. My mum suggested giving her a slap on the hand but i don't want to do that. Any suggestions on how i can get her to stop changing the channels?
