my soon to be 3 son has really gotten bad at hitting me or kicking me whenever i try to punish him. I do not hit him. I dont believe in it. He does have two aunts that are teens and he has seen them hit and kick each other. But when i put him in time out or raise my voice to him he will either kick me or hit/swing at me. And i just dont know what to do. Its gotten so bad that i start to cry. Which makes him laugh.. any one have any advice on how to end this behavior? thanks so much!Answer Question

I glad you are not spanking him. It will just teach him that if it is okay that mommy hits than it is okay for me to hit. Unfortunately he already learned that from his cousins. If time outs do not work, my 4 year old adopted therapist says to turn the child around so that there is no eye contact until he calms down then take him to time out.

My kids become like that, and sometimes worse, when I am trying to hand out discipline. Then, I learned from a therapist, they are trying to get a rise out of me. So, if I act upset, then it's like a reward for them. Even though I am frustrated, I do my best acting job. I pretend they aren't bothering me, but I still hand out the discipline. It works. Also, with my kids, I have had to take away all toy guns, teenage mutant nimja turtles, power rangers, and they are only allowed to watch non-violent TV shows. Good luck, it's not easy. BTW, my oldest does not act like his brothers, so it tells me not all kids should be parented alike. I just hope you find the right answer for your family.
