So ds doesn't pickup these habits from I & dh bc we don't hit one another and ds is the only child so he doesn't have any siblings.
Ok, so ds sends the night over my MIL house every weekend (she lives 10 maybe 15 minutes away from us). Anywho my CIL (cousin in law) stays with my MIL with her 3 kids ages 4, 9 and 1. The first oldest two are very active somewhat bad kids, they yell @ MIL when CIL is gone, they scream, throw things break things and fight one another. Once their mom comes back they act like fuckin angles o_0
Like I said ds goes over his grandmas house every weekend and they're there hitting one another but my ds either just watches or play along. I check up on ds a few times a day while hes there and I ask MIL is he on his best behavior and she always says yes.
Fast Forward: yesterday I took ds to the market with me (normally I never take him) he's probably only be to the grocery store maybe 3 times ever (dh usely has him while I shop) so yesterday he tried grabbing something and I told him no, no so he hits maybe someone of a shovel o_0 so I redirect him so I said no once again then he did it again so I popped him on his had. @ him it's a didn't story bc I DON'T PLAY THAT! I refuse to put a child in a corner telling him "time out. Bs, ds gets popped right on his hand and he clearly understands. I'm the parent, you aren't going to act lik you have no home training in period. Now I don't pop him all the time, most times I redirect him but @ times I think those bad ass kids rub off on him. I cant stand bad kids
I know he'll pick up habits all though life but I don't like this one and sometimes he thinks it's funny lol most times I laugh but he has his seriou moments too, any advice?
Excuse the typos, misspelled words I am mobile so theres no going back fixing (so heads up spell police lol)
