my son will be 2 in may and i am working on properly delivering timeouts bc he has a real mean attitude sometimes! he will push his sister out of the way when i pass out snacks in hopes of getting his first, he will throw things if you tell him no, etc. so i will put him in his room on the other side of the child gate for 2 minutes, but then when i go to the gate to pick him up he runs and jumps into his bed and hides his face likes he is soo mad at men, then when i walk away he screams bloody murder lol! most of the time i just ignore it and leave him thee an extra minute but why does he do that?

I believe it is typical toddler behaviour too... They need to learn empathy for others and also they don't have all the words they need in order to communicate Im sure that is frustrating for them. My 2 year old is alot like that at times. He kicks pinches and pulls his brother hair. I put him in a time out( mostly to separate the two so my oldest son doesn't get hurt) ,but I also try to get him to understand that hurts his brother. Use words he can understand for instance I say "that's not ok, that gives your brother a BOOBOO".He knows Boo Boos hurt. I never had to deal with these things when my first son was young he had more socializing at this age because he was in daycare . He was a kind child he didn't hit bite or pull hair so this is all new to me too with this one. It presses your patience to say the least. Pick your battles wisely if its something you can ignore sometimes thats best.
