Turning taps on

My son has an obession with water and loves turning taps on (never turning them off again). I find this very stressful and problematic. Has anyone else had this problem and what have you done about it ?

    My son also loves water, I try and create some activities for him using water, i.e. helping with dishes, mopping floor, putting toys in the bath, or filling the sink with water and putting toy sharks in etc. Sometimes even a small paddling pool on the kitchen floor with toys in . This way he does not sneak off as often to play on his own with the water.

    Hi. Apart from my son flushing objects down the toilet....wave bye bye to my watch and money!!!!!!! Friends children at school have tried to flood the classrooms and the teachers use alot of child's picture with no entry signs. Simple, but affective for some children.
