Hello, I have a 20mth old and just about a month or so ago he started into the world of his terrible two's. He throws his food off his plate, hits, and when I put him in time outs he thinks it is fun almost like a game. I know we all go thru this but I need some feedback. Thanks
I think the bad news is that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Once our precious babies discover free will, they push every button and test every limit. The best thing you can do is be consistent. If he hits you 7 times but only gets a time out 4 times, that sends the message that hitting is something he can get away with some times. I struggled with that with my son, but once I learned that I had to give a time out every. single. time. things started to improve. Now he's 4 1/2 and only gets a time out once a month, if even.
