We've had some problems recently with Noah running away from us when he doesn't want to go inside, or leave somewhere.
We went to Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek when we were in Michigan and at one point Noah ran ahead of Rich down a path. I think Noah was feeling anxious (something I need to discuss in another post) and also needed to deal with some pent up energy. It's not ok that he does this, but I'm not sure he can control himself either.
Anyway...I mentioned this to my mother on our visit.
Her response - put a leash on him. Maybe if you humiliate him he'll learn his lesson.
There are so many shades of wrong in this I don't know where to begin.
