  • My best friend has been having this same problem with her almost 2 yr old for a while now. He hits and smacks and bites. I think it all lies in the way you respond to them. Be firm in your voice. DO NOT laugh no matter how funny it is. And use time outs even if you have to hold him there for 1 minute. Eventually he will realize you mean business and he is not going to like the time outs.Be consistent firm and time out EVERY single time it happens. Even if it doesn't hurt anyone at that time, time out anyway. He will get the message and stop doing it.
