How do you get a 1 1/2 yr old to stop spitting?

My grandson started spitting the other day at the library with his mom. She said everyone he passed he tried to spit on them. So she picked him up 7 1/2 months pregnant and he still tried to spit on people when they walked by.

  • I would do a light tap in the mouth?

  • Tap him firmly on the mouth and if he does it again spank him on his rear or thigh , Trust me he'll stop. A good firm spank.

    But reassure why it is wrong what he is doing and what you are doing is out of love because you want people to respect your family and him spitting is very bad.
