  • Some kids are not the "sit-still" type. There's really nothing wrong with that. My son has been on the go every since he learned to roll. He's nearly 6 now. lol

  • I don't think a 2 year old has an off button! There is so much to do and see that is new that they can't sit still. Don't worry about trying to make her sit still. It isn't a realistic expectation for a 2 year old.

  • I have to agree with the others. Some kids that age are just that way. My first was that way. As long as he wasn't being destructive and getting into trouble I didn't mind it.
