It's a depends-on-the-situation thing for us, but we do let our 2.5 year old have a say in some day-to-day things. For instance, if I've planned an afternoon of minor errands and she's particularly engaged in house-bound activities and has expressed her desire to stay home, we often will.
Sometimes I'll set boundaries, like -- we'll stay home for as long as you play on your own well and let me clean the house; when you start bothering me too much, we'll head out.
Our family is pretty flexible in our schedule, and I'd rather be out with DD when she wants to be and will be pleasant and enjoying herself. But if we have to leave and do something, we will, even over her protests.
