Since my son started school this year, he has been getting a bit more impulsive/aggressive in his behavior. He will hit when he doesn't get his way or doesn't like something, etc. Also gets real loud. There have been a few incidents at school also which freak me out. He's a smart little guy. We've used time outs-only seems to work for Daddy-with me he follows me around saying he needs a hug while being hysterical. We've taken toys away and have banned tv privileges. As for his tv watching, its only Curious George and other PBS stuff-nothing aggressive. I almost dread going to pick him up from school now in case I get a report of his bad behavior.
He has hit me in public and home. We praise the good behavior but can't figure out what else to do about the bad behavior. I am having a hard time keeping my cool with this behavior. I'm in no way saying that school is the cause of this, but it seems to have begun around this time. Its his first time in school. Help!
