How do I get her to stop? Gosloving 1 child; Washington 12831 posts

Damaging her shoes? DD will walk and slide her toes (if that makes sense). She has like over 50 pairs of shoes and she has damages almost all of them. I'm at the point where I don't want her to use the one's she has not damaged and yet, I don't want her wearing the ones she has because they all look ugly and nasty.



I tried time outs. Taking away the little candy I do give her. Soda. I don't buy her toys or junk food (Happy meals, etc.) when she walks like that.



It just doesn't seem to stick.



HELP?

Does she point her toes down like a ballet dancer and slide? Or more like on the inside of her foot? In just tryin to get a visual, lol.
Is it something she does intentionally or maybe an issue with her gate? That's far fetched, I know, cause you would've noticed something that big by now. Does she do it when you're looking? How old?
Wow, lots of questions there. In sorry.

She's 3.



A is Me, she will walk and like point her toes and slide them. I'll see her do it, tell her something and then she'll do it behind my back. She thinks it's funny.

That's frustrating but I'm sorry, I have absolutely no advice, lol.

I would tell her is she wanted to walk like a baby she would have to sit in a stroller like a baby.

DD does it also. I have never punished her for it because it is an accident. She trips a lot.



Just because she does it behind you doesn't mean she is doing it on purpose. It could be an accident and she just doesn't want to be punished anymore.

Well, I don't have a stroller. That's how it started though. We were in Six Flags and when I would push it she would put her toes down, her feet would drag and the shoes would get damaged.

Except, DD doesn't trip. She drags her feet.
