why is my two year old is abusive to his dad?

my son is normally very well behaved and polite, but lately when his father comes home in the evening and spends one on one time with him he (my son) hits him with all sorts of toys. we have no idea what is going on. he gets his warning and then his time out, but keeps ending up back in time out. any ideas?

  • DS is the same way, even with DH home (laid off). DS is fine with everyone else, and beats on Daddy all the time. So I am curious to hear people's answers!

  • He doesn't understand that Daddy works. He feels abandoned.
