  • If it was an accident, just clean them up...If it was on purpose make him sit @ the table and only give him a few @ a time --- make him help clean them up for sure.

  • I make my 19 month old pick them up.

  • Clean them up. They are toddlers and if you make a huge deal out of it, it will turn into a game. It is all part of a child's development.

  • I'd tell her "we don't dump our food out on the ground..." and id just clean them up and leave it at that.

  • I would make the child clean them up. Tell them we don't dump our food like that and not let them have any more for a while.

  • My son does better with goodies in a ziplock for some reason. hes 18 months and insists on pouring out every cup and bowl possible. But with a ziplock hell pull one by one, unless hes being rotten. Then Ill just take them away and he gets one at a time.
