My 14 mo. old son laughs when I tell him no.
I stay serious and change my tone of voice. He keeps doing it and thinks it's a game. I have tried slapping his hand away and he has begun slapping me back.
I pick him up or distract him but it doesn't solve anything in the long run.....
What can I do to teach him his limits?

instead of saying "no" say " not okay!!" say it like you mean it. take the item away or remove him from the area. Do not smile or laugh if he goes back to do it again ...say it again " NOT OKAY !" do not pick him up or cuddle with him that is rewarding him and it is confusing. It might also help id you got down to his level. Do not pick him up to your eye level that againis rewarding him. Be firm and consistent. after a while he will get the clue. Make sure you also use facial expressions so he knows that you are not happy with what ever he is doing.
it will not happen over night but it will happen stay strong stay consistent, never falter good luck
