Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Oh my goodness NO!!Think of what might be in the sand! You should be worried that hes eating animal poop. Which is totally completely NOT a good idea.
Well of course I know that, but when I tell him no, or try to take it out of his hands, he runs away and shoves it in his mouth real quick before I can get to him. Sometimes, I just can't prevent him from eating it.
yes you can prevent him from eating it! it's a matter of telling him no, stopping him, and then when he still continues, you leave. or better yet, before he even gets it in his mouth, warn him that if he continues, you will leave. AND YOU MUST FOLLOW THROUGH!
