  • He's 2 but the first and most important thing is not to give in to what you said NO about! If he yells fine, but the hitting the person who tells him NO is unacceptable (but you know that)... Remove him from the situation, even in public. Take him back to the car, take him to the restroom, TAKE HIM HOME! I've had to walk out of the store "1" time, with out my purchase. Once was all it took for my boys ( and I have 3) to know that they didn't RUN me. There is one rule in our home, no matter what you don't hit mommy. NOW, Spank him harder (with your hand of course) and then tell him you love him and he "WILL NOT HIT YOU"... If you have to spank him and put him in time out at the same time, do so! There is no overkill when you are losing a battle. He's 2 he has to know even at this age there are consequences for his actions and most importantly that you are the parent not him. GOOD LUCK! Just keep being presistant.

  • Ignore the child when he does this. Dont even look at him. Keep your back turned to the child and say as long as your acting like this you get no attention from me.
