“Electricity” : Convos With My 2-Year-Old

Posted by , under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Explaining danger to your kid can be kind of hair raising for parents, but if it’s someone else who’s doing the explaining, it can be pretty flippin’ funny.

We’re big fans of stick figure signs here at, so this is especially priceless. Enjoy!

    With the exception of the dog pee portion, I have had this very conversation with my older son. More than once.

    Omg you captured explaining danger to a toddler perfectly. You can’t say too much or they ask follow up questions. But if you dont make the situation seem urgent they want to touch it. Then you start making things up to deter them if all else fails distract them with something furry or shiny. Lol I feel like I spend 2 hours a day explaining why various household objects are dangerous. Try to explain why we don’t sit bare bottom on a “clean” public toilet to a 3 year old.

      Haha! It can be a little difficult to avoid the communication to our young kids being all about what can hurt/kill/sicken them.
