  • be clear, very clear. Don't tell him no to things you shouldn't such as getting into a cupboard (its just exploring) if you dont like him to get into something then just redirect him. No should be used for things like ("no more food, or no to anything dangerous or that could serve as a danger) Just be persistent and clear is all I can suggest.

  • Well, he is just 10 months so you have a while yet before he really gets it, just be consistant and stick to your guns, I do NOT agree with poping in any way a child this young, just say NO and REDIRECT your sons behaviour away from things you dont want him to be around or doing
    Good luck!
