  • My son started this early and he is 15 months now. But what I did is just pull his hair back while he was pulling mine saying" Oww that hurts mommy!!" and show a sad pouty face. Also we have porcelin dolls and he used to pull there hair and to get the point across I would pull his hair when he would pull the dolls hair...he rarely pulls hair now
