  • its funny how kids mimmick what parents do...LOL Im sorry your probably really upset but it reminds me of a woman who said she put her son on a kid leash and in the middle of the aisle he got on all fours and started barking...LOL

    I would see if he is ready for the big boy potty

    I would also put him on a 2 minute timeout right after. I used to have guardianship over my cousin and his mom gave him the awful habit of hitting and everytime it happened I told him how wrong it was etc. and put him on time out for 3 minutes.

    one minnute per year of age
