Saw lots of toddler nowadays still like to sit in stroller. For safety sake, I can understand it's better than a toddler running wildly in the mall. The one I can't really tolerate is a 4 or 5 years old still in a stroller!!! That's ridiculous to me... no offend to other parent coz you may have your reasons for big kid to stay in stroller but not me!
Perhaps the stroller is too small or the toddler is too big. I can see one thing that promote on the kid is laziness plus enjoying as a big baby... LOL! That's pamper...
En En now go out with us without stroller. Stroller was a helper before she can walk but now is a burden for me. Imagine I still need to carry her bottles, bibs, milk powder, diapers/nappy, wipes, etc... in a super huge bag. I wish to reduce on something else and it got to be the stroller. Then, must be tired of carrying her, right? Let her walk!!! That's how she got to burn her energy and build up her leg's strength and stamina. I encourage her to walk more and move freely than sitting quietly in the stroller. I just love to see little one moving about everywhere. Mummy or daddy will have to keep an eye of her as she loves to walk to anywhere... especially following other little children she saw.
What if she nags and throw tantrum? Then got to hug her and carry her for a while... after that put her down slowly when she forgot. Sometimes, she just lifts her leg up protesting and doesn't want to get down on the floor! Well, I still try to put her down and most of the time... hehe... mummy won! LOL Moments like this makes me think of investing in wrap or baby pouch so that I can just hang on the body and still hands-free!!
