Are boundaries appropriate for this age and if so, how do I establish those? Examples: tonight in the bathtub I had to tell him to sit down at least 15 times. I would help him sit down, explain that standing in the bathtub is dangerous and we want him to be safe. Moments later he was standing again. The really frustrating thing about it is he thinks it's funny. The more stern I sound, the funnier he thinks it is. He also likes to unplug electrical cords. We try to hide them as much as possible, but some of them are in view. He thinks it's funny when we tell him to stop and explain why. We try to distract him with something else, but he typically heads right back to the electrical cord and laughs harder like it's a game. He also does this with throwing food on the floor. He takes one bite and the next one hits the floor, two bites and then three are thrown on the floor. We try to explain that his food stays on his tray, but he gives us a big, cheesy grin and drops another bite on the floor. These probably sound trivial, but add them all up multiplied by all day and I'm exhausted!! I'm losing my patience with him lately and I need some
