My second son just turned 5 yeard old and he has developed a habit for hitting. This past Sunday he hit another kid in his Sunday School class. Of course his parents were mad. My husband and I punished our son as we saw fit. But he is continuing to hit his older brother! What am I going to do? He is very strong and he don't hit hit he Punches and punches hard! How do I punish for that?

  • Aside from general parent talks...Id put him in Karate! Its a great way to get out is anger and frustrations and to learn disipline and respect at the same time

  • you need to sit him down and have a talk if he keeps on hitting take things aways so he knows... and if that doesn't work then time out
