Would your child sit content for 2 hours?

Do your kids stay seated in their stroller without trying to get out?  Let's say at a little league baseball game that lasts 2 hours?  My 12 month old never ever stays in her stroller longer then 5 minutes.   This little boy is 18 months and sits in his stroller for the whole game every week.  How do they get him to do that?  My kids are always off running around, playing with other kids etc and their children sit and dont move the entire time.  I dont even know why I bother with the stroller since we never end up using it.  

Would you toddlers/children sit in a stroller content for 2 hours?

my kids don't sit still for 2 minutes.

my youngest is 2 1/2 though, so we don't use a stroller.

 Nope. Not a chance. She's 3 1/2.

 One could only wish.  My 6 year old does not sit still for that long. Yea when my kids were small, strollers were useless pretty much. I had a double stroller we barely used.

not a chance if it was sitting still. If we were walking then maybe.

I never did that. I feel it is inappropriate and unhealthy. My child was very calm and well behaved and I could take him anywhere but I never confined him in a stroller in fact I very rarely used one.

 my 23 month old would most definetly not. he hasn't sat in a stroller at all for about 6 months. he hates them. he would sit on my lap for awhile, but then he would need to get up and go explore and play.

Nope. My youngest is just a few days shy of one and he hates being confined to a stroller. He wants to go play :)

That is how my son is too...in the little "umbrella" strollers, he would just stand up (completely clipped in) and drag the stroller behind  him....it was kind of funny;)
