Any great tips once they've learned to open doors, get past barriers, and begin climbing up everything? Thanks!!

I LOVE that phase.( just kidding) The best thing you can do is put everything you think is dangerous as high as you can out of reach, always try to be one step ahead. Re-direct, teach the word "No" and most important "Hot" with plugs and outlets and take all buttons off stove..um...and try to relax, if it isn't dangerous and it is just a mess, don't freak, get out the camera, you'll want to laugh about it later. Before I had kids of my own, my friend came to work and told me while laughing that her 2 year old got into the instant potatoes while she had left the room for a few seconds and poured them all over the carpet, and she was fortunate that she caught her before she made it back with water. I never understood why she laughed, until I had my own kids. :)

ahhh, you grasshopper, have reached the point where you just begin teaching him not to climb, open doors without asking, and etc... obviously hide the dangerous stuff better than you have, med's scissors are often forgotten and cutting blocks, but establish a time out spot and begin conditioning behaviors, may the will power of bf skinner be with you! watch him better and know everyone begins with correcting them ALOT... if he is smart enough to out-think the baby proofing, he is smart enough to learn to be safe.... good luck ....
