okay so here is the problem my son is almost fifteen months old, and i have no idea how to punish him correctly. he is old enough and smart enough to know when he is doing something he isn't supposed too and he def. knows what "no" means. he does this thing when he gets mad and will yell like "aggh" purposely at who ever made him mad and im having issues because he cries over every little thing. its an obvious fake cry but its him trying to get his way. spoiled.
i have been doing things such as saying no, smacking his hand and honestly even tapping him on the butt when he does the yelling at me thing. problem is its not getting any better and doesn't seem to help at all. this is my first child and i am a young mom, any help or advice would really be appreciated :)

First of all, PLEASE Don't hit. It does not work and is just mean. He is bored & needs to be re-directed. If my DS does something REALLY bad like reach at the stove or run a little away from me outside, I will Yell loud to shock him. It's enough to stop the behavior. You need to occupy his time. Local Libraries have infant & toddler programs that are free and are GREAT. You have to sign up in advance so you should go to the Library & look into it. They have play time, crafts, puppet shows & story time & music. Then you can pick DVD's & books. His behavior is normal for a boy his age. We just have to bear with it and this too will pass. Good luck!
