My son just turned 16 months on the 6th, and we have been having a lot of issues with the flat screen tv in our living room. Owen likes to play "knock knock" on the screen... and turn the tv on and off repeatedly. When i try to tell him no no... and pull him away..he makes it into a game.. laughs at me.. and does it all over again. I have tried time outs in his crib.. by the fridge... I have tried gently smacking his hand.being nice.. being firm.... nothing works.. i always get laughed at.. and its starting to get a little frustrating. I feel like 1 is a little young for time outs.. But i can't move the tv. He does this both while the tv is on and while it's off. The kicker is... He doesn't do it AT ALL... when daddy is around. :( Anyone have any tips?!Answer Question
Every child is different. My 15 month old does this same thing. I don't think she is old enough to quite grasp the concept of NO fully so I just distract her. When she hits the television, I tell her NO and give her something else to do.
