My 3-year-old has become an escape artist. He wakes up early in the morning before anyone is up and tries to get out of the house. During the day, every chance he gets, he sneaks out of the back door or out of his window, which we no longer leave open, and goes off down the road. He always heads towards the park and says he is going for a walk. I cannot express the fear you feel when all of a sudden you cannot find your child. Why does he do this, and what can we say in order to get through to him that this is not OK?
