  • It's time to call Super Nanny!! No but really maybe you can talk to his pediatrician or maybe talk to his care givers and see if they maybe know where the source of violence is coming from.

  • I know this sounds mean, but you need to do back to him what he does to others so that he can empathize with what he did. He needs to know it hurts when he bites or hits.

  • I know we all have very different parenting techniques but if my kid ever thru something at me, anything could be the smallest toy in the house, I would probably spank the hell out of him and put in time out for the rest of the day, because if you let him get away with it the first time I can assure you it will happen again and things can get very very ugly with a child that is not disciplined at a young age. I have a friend that used to think that his child was just aggressive but wasn't capable of hurting anyone, next thing she new, her son threw a rock at some girl at a park and she had to be taken to the hospital for stitches. I'm not saying your child could get that aggressive but its better to discipline them yourself, before some other parent tried to do it, and I know nobody likes their children disciplined by someone else, even if they really need it.
