  • my son does this too!! he hits me in the face. although he is still sweet when he wants to be- cuddles give kisses. but he is very strong willed and he is very mean sometimes. he knows what he is doing too. I don't know I'm still trying to figure it out myself =\ lol

  • I don't think that is normal. But talk to his doctor. I have never heard of a kid NEVER wanting to cuddle.
    And why are you letting him get away with hitting you?

  • dont ask people if you should hit his hands or not. thats up to you. I smack my sons hands and butt. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. just stay consistent. thats the only thing you can do because they are just learning. they are pushing our buttons. :)

  • Krazy is right. How you discipline is up to you. However, if you let him get away with this now, he will be bigger and hit harder later. Make a choice on discipline and be consistant. If you are not against spanking, look up how to spank properly.
