My son is 4 years old. If I dont let him have his way he will hit or kick me. Today he punched me in the face when I was trying to put him on his school bus. I am so frusterated. We used to spank, but are trying not to. Sometimes it still happens, but that is only when he has done something completely wrong. I am just so lost. I dont know what to do. I feel like a horrible parent, and felt completly stupid in front of his bus driver today. Am I the only one whose 4 year old is hitting me? Isnt this supposed to be a phase around the age of 2? Help please!!Answer Question

Thank you for your answers. Usually when he hits me it is in public, so it is hard for me to dicipline him there. Like today for example, will he even remember the hitting when he returns from school? The reason he hit me is because he wanted to ride his bike down the driveway to his bus. He doesnt know how to use the breaks. So he couldnt. Therefore he hit me. Punched actually in the face and kicked me several times. I was so embarrsed. I want to take his bike away, but will he even "get" the consiquence so long after the fact?! My mom said I should hide it and tell him the cops saw him and came and took his bike away. I dont know. I am just so lost, and feeling miserable...
