Take a look at the attached photo. Have your kids ever done this much damage??Whats the worst thing your toddlers have ever done.My daughter when she was 3 decided to help me by putting on the washing machine. She put a whole pack (large) of washing powder in and flooded my kitchen with foam. Took ages to get rid of and my house smelled like a launderette for ages. It also burned out the motor as it got wet and it was a fairly new machine. Have yu any toddler horror stories??

The attached photo is hilarious and scary at the same time! I hope the kids didn't develope allergy after their "experiment". As we all know kids love to experiment with everything they see, they do not know if it's good or bad. My 2 year old son, decided to help me with putting his clothes inside the cabinets, instead of giving me the clothes, he threw the clothes in the air one and one while he's screaming with glee. Instead of getting upset, I just told him to pick up the clothes and put them on the bed, he obliged and patiently taught him how to fold clothes. Of course he did a terrible job but the smile on his face is worth all the hard work.

Well, here goes. My little nephew had a accident on himself and then preceeded to smear it everywhere in a few minutes tiime before he was caught walls floors furniture,everything.Nasty. And a very nasty job to clean up. And once we were filling up my little sister pool and we went in to do something and we told her to come on to and she started following us but at the last second she grabbed the hose and followed us into the house with it and dropped it and game running in to tell us the water hose wouldn't reach all the way into the house and we checked and there in the mud room and into the kitchen was tons of water and it was slick trying to hurry to get it and twist it to stop the water we had a job cleaning all that water up we threw towels and blankets on it to get it all cleaned up. Landlady was mad when she found out about it which the neighbors broke there necks to tell them. Lucky it didn't do any damage but we didn't get our deposit when e moved because of damage the water may have done that is unseen.

My kids haven't done anything this bad, just the liquid soap all over the bathroom counter and floor and pulling stuffing out of a cushion. I thought my kids had done some crazy stuff but after seeing that picture and all that paint I have little angels. My husband would have cried about the TV.

I never let my toddlers do any mischievous acts in my house, I never let them alone by themselves or touch anything they shouldn't touch or go nearby anything that will cost me so much money. so my toddlers always behave wonderfully and never a nuisance to me,but someone that i'm proud of. It written in book of proverbs that is easy to teach a child when is young than is become an adult

What happens if you're not there? Do they go crazy and just start touching everything? Part of training a child in the way that they should go is allowing them some freedoms to make mistakes and seeing how they respond. It's hard to say if your toddlers really are behaving wonderfully if they're not allowed to move.

How do you get anything done if you are always watching your toddlers? What happens when you need to cook or use the bathroom? I couldn't do it. There were many times I left my 3 toddlers alone and they did get into a lot of mischief (they still do) but they also learned to behave some too. I trust my middle two children to watch the baby while I am in the other room cooking. They are very responsible with her (they are 4 and 5). They only behave badly when their older sister is there to egg them on.

When my son was 18 mos old, I was taking a shower and he got into the refridgerator and took a whole new 3lb of velveeta cheese out of the wrapper. He smeared it all over himself, the outside of the fridge and all over the kitchen floor. Let me tell you that stuff does not clean up easily at all. It just keeps smearing. It took me several hours to get it cleaned up. I haven't bought velveeta since then.

Wow, that is some predicament. Don't worry sweets, you are NOT alone. One time my kids were supposedly napping. They are only 13 months apart. It was so nice and quiet. When they had been down about an hour I peeked in. They were COVERED with diaper rash ointment...the horrible sticky white kind. It was all over them like clown faces and on their clothes and the walls, the carpet and the wood of both cribs. I cleaned everything with baby oil the way I cleaned their skin when I changed them after an application of the ointment. The oil did good for the wood furniture but not so good for the carpet. The bedclothes and their clothing washed out in hot water. Another time they were a little older in the summer time. We had their playroom in our downstairs family room. I was going up and down with laundry and they were playing. I took a load up. When I returned down they had opened up the door of the woodstove which of course was cold at that time of year. They were both into the ashes in the belly of the stove. EVERYTHING was black. I had a renovation story a few years later. My girlfriend and I were stripping wallpaper in my kitchen and bathroom and repainting. We just finished at one point for the day. We were exhausted. Her kids and my kids were in the next room supposedly watching TV. By this time they were like first grade or so. We went in to see them and they had ripped huge chunks of paper off the living room wall. HORROR. We had no intention of redoing that room but we did in the end!!

My eldest daughter has had a few trying moments in her younger years! When she was about three, she overflowed the bath tub with water and bubble bath and proceeded to slide up and down the bathroom and hallway on her bottom. There was water dripping through the floor boards!! She has also painted the wardrobe mirrors with foundation (makeup) and walked in it on the new pale pink carpet we had at the time! She has also unrolled all the toilet paper and looped it around the house. Very funny now but I really don't know how she survived to this age (she's 12 now)

LOL nope I was pretty lucky with my two kids but one night when we were at my friends place and the two boys disappeared. Well they got into baby powder and when they came down they were covered and looked like 2 old men. We laughed so hard. I have also heard of kids getting into that Penatin cream and because it's greasy it is really hard to get out.

My kids were always up to something too. One day my daughter and her friend decided to make a giant sandwich with her mattrass. They covered it with butter and rubbed it well in, and then spread something, I cant remember to be truthful, probably jam all over the buttered mattrass. We had to get her a new mattrass. Whenever there was something wrong my daughter would be involved.

all i gotta say about that picture is thank god it wasn't carpet!! haha...well nothing to that exream has happend to me...i have 2 boys myself, and the most they've done is empty out powder container all over their toys. spread 1/2 a giant bottle of lotion all over themselves, and the carpet...my eldest son broke a DVD in half. and somehow when my son was 3mo old figured out how to get a closed (sealed) bottle of ketchup open. then there was some milk artwork on my sisters glass coffee table. those are just my boys...my sisters got into a lot of mishcief..which includes drilling a hole in the wall all the way through to the other side with an ice pick and also skating in the bathroom...

My son thankfully never did anything that created a big mess that I had to clean up. I think the worst he ever did was write on his bedroom door with markers. It is good that they make washable markers. One time we did have to make a trip to the emergency room when he was 3. He found a flashlight and in the base was a replacement lightbulb. For some reason he ate the lighbulb. He told be he thought it was candy. Luckily all he did was cut his mouth up a little bit.

Looking at that my boys are angels, they pull down curtains, write on walls - at my friends houses aswell, have water and food fights. Last week while I changed because we'd been on the beachwith the dog my youngest emptied a full bottle of fairy liquid all over my lounge because he wanted to "see the bubbles." Two hours later my laminate floor, leather sofa, walls and Tv were cleaned. You'd think it'd be good but everything was either sticky, slippery, bubbly or blue and it stank of eucalyptus. Thank you for sharing that dreadful photo, it reminds me things could be worse!

I have never had any this bad or should I as funny. Sorry you had to go through that. My youngest got in to a new box of cream of wheat and it was all over the place but all I had to do was run the vac. here reselently he desided to paint his nails like the big boys do and got it all over his bed frame. That was fun to clean up I still haven't gotten it all up yet. My oldest (now 14) loved to climb up on things I didn't know he was doning this just yet and he got in to the food coloring and played artist with it. My middle son 13 was alway making bubble baths with the shampoo (all over the bath room). Keep this photo when they get older and move out or start dating it will be a funny thing to look back on.
