My 10 yr old sons constent butt slapping-how do you get him to stop?

My youngest son constatly slaps my butt. He has been doing it for yrs. He does when I walk by him and and when he comes up to talk to me. At first I addressed it and asked him not to do it. Then I tryed to ignore it. It's not maliscious it's more like a habit. Sometimes he seems not to be aware that he is doing it. Anbody esles sone do this? How do I stop it it's driving me crazy?

  • Be preemptive.....grab his wrist before he has a chance to hit you. Tell him very firmly that he is stop hitting you and that if he continues there will be consequences. Sent to his room. Sent to bed early. No video game time, etc.

  • Yikes... actually that could be mistaken as disrespect. I would keep disciplining him for it and stay consistent.

  • He has been doing this for years and now it bothers you? Just tell him he is a little old for him to be butt slapping you, it is disrespectful.

  • every time he does it take something away or put him time out. He will get the message.

  • I agree, take something away everytime he slaps your butt. Or if he gets an allowance, subtract .25 off every time he slaps your butt. He is being disrespectful.
