If you pinch him back, you are sending the lesson that pinching can send a message; not sensible to me...
HUH??? Pinching them back is a sure fire way to make them stop. I raised 5 children, 4 of whom are now grown. Pinch me once, shame on you, pinch me twice, shame on me! They have to learn self control and discipline. I am NOT a mean Mommy, as a matter of fact, I am very laid back, however, if a child does not listen when they are hurting you or someone else, they need to be shown what they are doing. Sometimes they don't realize it hurts, they are just looking for ways to get a reaction out of you.
