  • Keep in mind that he doesn't know he's bullying. He doesn't know it's wrong. This is when you teach him. When he does this, remove him from the situation. Take the toy away and give it back., Be consistent and do it every time. When he gets the message that he's not supposed to do that, he'll stop.

  • babies know...if you incourage it and think its cute hes going to continue you doing it...pull him away or pop his hand and say no. My sister would tell her son when he was that age to "bite" and "hit aunt shay" "get mad"...everyone thought it was soooo cute and now he is a 2 and half year old shit head
