We all know most toddlers like to do what you point out they shouldn't do. And my kid does the same, of course. When I say "Don't brush your teeth", he runs to the bathroom to brush them. So I've been using that "trick" lately just to get him to do stuff.
For instance I say:
"Don't finish your dinner" when I want him to eat something he doesn't really love.
"Don't go to bed" at bedtime
"Don't get in the tub" at bathtime
and so on...
He's going to be 3 in December. He's very mature for his age and he's generally very well behaved and polite.
