Or at least I seems like I did!
My almost 3 year old dd is a hardcore climber. She pulls the drawers out on her dresser, and uses them to climb to take the cassette tapes out of the player and rip them to shreds. If we take the knobs off, how can we get the drawers open?

She climbs up to her sisters top bunk, and there's no ladder there. She simply grips with her monkey toes (LOL) and scurries up . We've taken the beds apart and made them side by side, but then jumped so much on them she fell off and about broke her arm.

We go to the grocery store, and she throws a HUGE hissy fit when we ask her if she wants to sit in the front of the basket, or ride in the big part. She wants to WALK. Well that's not an option, nor a choice. So she chooses the big part, and of course she climbs out the moment I turn to grab something off the shelf. Sling her you say? I've already got the 10 month old strapped on.

HELP! How can I stop this? Is it possible?

I just know my son will be just like your daughter.
I would just use clear packing tape so she couldn't get into the tape player.
When my older one was small I used to use my finger nail to open the drawers with after I took the knobs off. If I didn't have fingernails I would bring a butter knife in the room and hide it somewhere high.
Good luck.
