How to stop a 2 year old from spitting??

My 2 year old boy keeps spitting when he is mad or when he thinks he's being funny. We don't laugh at him. I tell him no, but I don't want to smack his mouth and bust his lip open.

  • Don't do anything. Just ignore it. It is a stage. He will stop soon. Then he will do something else. The bigger deal you make out of it, the bigger deal it will become.
