  • It is hard, luckily my daughter was 2 when she got hers so it was a little easier. We just had to keep putting them back on her over and over again. I would put them on her and then try to distract her with a game or a toy, she would leave them alone for a little while and eventually she just learned to leave them alone all together. good luck momma!

  • thanks i've been trying to distract her and she'll keep them on for about three minutes before she realizes and yanks them off

  • Im totally joking here! Duck tape! Do you have a velcro strap? could you run an extra peice down under her chin from the temple part?

  • Be consistant. She will learn that it's not an option to take them off.

  • Patience, I guess.  My daughter was 18 months when she got hers and I never had a problem.  Her doctor was surprised.  We didn't have any special straps or ear pieces, just regular plastic frames.
