  • He is less than 2? Stop saying things to him that he can say shut up to. Stop saying shut up to him.

  • he obviously learned shut up from SOMEONE. it may not be you but whoever it is you need to talk to them and make sure they watch what they're saying around your little one!

  • Less than two? Immediately put him in his crib for a couple of minutes (no toys). At that age, he's basically repeating what he's heard from someone. But he needs to understand that it's not ok to say that to you or anyone else.

    Older than two? Regular time out in a "naughty chair" or whatever set-up you have.
