Ok, so I'm a first time mom and I'm not sure how I should handle this.
This is a new thing for my 15 mo old son. When he gets into something he shouldn't, I pick him up to stop him. He gets angry, turns beat red and screams, and then hits me in the face. It's kind of funny to watch (doesn't hurt), but obviously we can't allow this kind of behavior. I can't swat him back, so what do I do? I have been grabbing his arm and very sternly telling him "NO! WE DO NOT HIT!" Is he too young for time out? I don't know if he would realize what he's being punished for.
Need some advice!
