Do you only call on her when she is in trouble?
Be sure to call her for good things. Call her exactly as you would any other time, but give her an extra hug or tell her you love her or if it is snack time give her her snack. In fact, at snack time or meal time call her. Don't treat her running away as a game, don't laugh when she does this. I'd actually turn away and ignore until she came as you asked.
Quoting Mommy2justone:Do you only call on her when she is in trouble?
Say her name with love all the time!!!!
18 months and the world is fascinating to her. She is easily distracted, low impulse control,etc. I would just physically go get her thoughl.
she's only 18 months....be patient and stay consistent.
Stay consistent. Use her name often.
