my 20 month old is determined to get a spanking today! i hate spanking him but he has such an attitude today!!! its not even noon and he has been in time out 3 times already! if he wants something that he cant have and i tell him to put it back he will throw it (in anger!). i was attempting to make him a cup of milk, but i want him to learn how to say it. so i get the empty cup and walk to the fridge and he screams and crys for the cup so i give him the empty cup to get the milk out of the fridge and he throws it at me! really where does he gets his attitude from lmao!!

My 24 month old does the same thing. I do explain to him not to throw things and tell him why ( It will break or you could hurt someone or you can make a mess) If my son throws food I take his plate away and ask him to pick up the mess and put it on his plate and then into the trash. I think they act out in those ways because they do not have the words they need to express there feelings or frustrations. Say things like are you upset because you want a drink? It takes patience ,but its worth it. I do not spank personally. I think teaching your child the vocabulary they can use to communicate will resolve things easier. Goodluck!!
