Whatever I do, he just thinks it's funny. I usually try to vacuum at other times (like when dh is around and can play with ds), but sometimes I don't have that option.
I guess this would apply to a lot of things he does, but particularly with the things that are absolutely unsafe.

My 21-month old ds loves to play with the cord of the vacuum cleaner when I'm using it. Experienced mamas, what's an appropriate way of handling this in a gentle manner?
Keep an eye on them, and keep them away from the socket.
Satisfy their curiosity and they'll abandon it soon enough.
Now, if I could just figure out how to get the dogs to leave it alone when i clean...

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Whenever we go to Goodwill or a thrift store he runs right to the vacuums and will plug them in and proceed to vacuum the store. He's the same way with brooms and mops, but not as bad. He just loves those vacuums!
