How can I get my son (he will be 2 in November) to stop hitting, biting, and pinching his older brothers and sister?

He gets angry and does this. I do know he is at that age, but I don't remember my other kids being this bad at it.

  • Spitting.. maybe a time out? As far as biting, etc.. do it back to him. Not enough to hurt him, but enough to show him how it feels and why he shouldn't do it.

  • I agree with previous poster. I do this back to my sons, and they don't do it anymore. That is what my parents did to me.

  • I also agree. When my boys started biting I did it back to them. They didn't like it. If that didn't work I gave them a little smack across the mouth. They stopped.
