My son will be turning 3 at the end of April. He is like Jekyll and Hyde. One minute he is hugging and kissing our 6 month old and the next minute starts smacking the baby in the face over and over and laughing about it! He shows NO remorse for his actions even after being put in timeout or having a toy taken away. I carry the baby on my hip ALL DAY LONG (yeah, my back hurts...) to protect him from his big brother.
I know toddlers/preschoolers often express their frustration through violence due to a lack of communication skills. The difference here is that he isn't upset when he lashes out. He thinks it is funny!
Does anyone have similar experiences to this?
Am I raising a sociopath!?
