comment How can I brush my toddlers' teeth when he won't let me?
It's pretty common. My toddler does it too. Somehow, we've convinced him to let us do it; just practice and patience, I guess.

@torbengb post it, that may well be THE answer.

At 2.5 years old? You must be joking.

Doesn't work. Tried this already; he always returns to the outlet.

As mentioned in the question, my son is two and a half. This is not going to work, and it won't prevent him from sticking a screwdriver in it later.

Didn't work. He's impervious to positive and negative punishment.

@Carmi excellent suggestion! I will look into it. (Maybe you want to make this an answer so I can up-vote it.) ALso, can you provide a link to a page describing safety breakers? Googling didn't work.

Nice, but not useful when he's not at home (suggestion #1). As for suggestion #2 -- it's a kids book about a turtle, so it works, and I know he understands; he just doesn't listen. Maybe I'll try your repetition idea.
