Ok...so most of the time he is, but he is learning fast how to be purposely rude and mean!
It seems as though every time we go to the grocery store, he is throwing fits and looking me straight in the eye while he picks up every item and throws it on the floor, even though I tell him no over and over. And then if he gets mad, he hits me and if I tell him "no hitting" then he does it even more! I am at a loss, he doesnt seem to understand the concept of time out, but he does know "no no." He even tells himself "no no" before he does something he knows is wrong.
I thought I had a good year before the terrible twos.....what can I do to help him behave???

Grab his hand as soon as he swings, look him straight in the eye, and in a very strong and firm voice say NO. Do it every time. Also,if you are home or some where you can, put him from you immediately and walk away. When he realizes he no longer has your attention, that will help too. My one yr old started this few weeks ago and this worked really well. It only took a few days to break him of the habit. I am not above a quick swat on the butt when its some thing I REALLY need him to understand is wrong (messing with cords and outlets!) But I was with you on the teaching him to to not hit by hitting didn't reason out well :) I don't think time outs work for crap, but to each his own. If it works for you great, I just don't care for it to the extent of a special chair and such. Seems to me its more like a "special" place for them to go when they are bad....how does that help. Hope this helps some!
