  • Maybe he doesn't know how you want him to behave when he's being disciplined? So hold on to him and tell him.

    I know a lot of teenagers and adults who laugh in inappropriate situations, and I always assumed that it was because they were simply uneducated about proper social responses.

  • ignore his not chase him if he runs bc he thinks its a can try time out for 2 minutes and if he gets up put him right back in the spot. are you a yeller or a spanker? I rarely spank but I will swat him on his little diapered behind if he is being truly nasty to his older brothers and not listening. most times I yell to get his attention then keep my voice strong and forceful but not yelling so he knows I'm not playing around. (My peanut is 2 by the way and he laughs all the time)

  • Swat his butt

  • I have tried spanking, on his diaper, and on his bare leg.. cuz the diaper doesn't even phase him, I tried yelling, and a strong voice.. and timeout, but he just acts like its a game, like its funny that he is so naughty.
