My almost 2-year old toddler enjoys falling on her knees (purposely) and then saying "ouch" with a big smile on her face.
I didn't think much of it when she used to do it on carpet, but now, she has started doing it on concrete/driveways/etc. This has resulted in some scraped knees and loud crying (but that doesn't seem to stop her). I am also generally concerned about the well being of her knees.
I've asked repeatedly to not do that ("no Grace, Grace get an ouch") but she seems to associate "ouch" with a good thing. (I have no idea why.) How do I get her to recognize that hurting herself...is not a good thing?
