  • spanking, corner time, time out, taking away old sitter who had several kids swore by doing it to them which did work for her kids and mine.

  • My two year old constantly bit her cousin. Nothing would make her stop. So I had to closely watch her at all times, so I could stop it before it happened. She felt threatened by him, and was also possessive of her toys, I'm guessing. I put her in time outs for hitting but try to calm her down before she gets to the point that she gets mad enough to hit. She's doing a lot better, but it's difficult for some kids to learn to control their behaviors when they are so upset.
