When my son was that little and smacking his hand didnt work anymore, I resorted to popping the diapered butt! Didnt hurt him ohysically but damn sure get his attention and hurt that pride a little, took him back down a notch. Then got into giving time outs where he had to stay in a kitchen chair for a minute per age. (like when he was 3, he sat for three minutes) At about 4 or 5 he got to spend some alone time in his room to reflect on his behavior.

Unfortunately, its what two year old do. (Terrible two's) don't know if there is to much more you can do.. Popping, time out for 2 mins, eye level communication, its not easy, hang in there.. I know how it must feel especially when you are pregnant, makes it a little more difficult..

Time outs. Hand popping or butt popping for hitting him isn't teaching him anything other then that hitting is ok because that's the response he is getting.

Just be consistent in whatever you decide to do. It's going to take a lot of repetition for him to learn that hitting is not ok.

Time out! its going to be hard at first, but if you stay consistant with it, it will pay off! He will try to fight it and get up, but everytime he gets up you need to walk him back to the spot you've designated and tell him time starts over. Eventually he will see you mean bussiness and give up. Nothing is worse than having to stay put when they are that age, so making it a point that his behavior is not acceptable and he cant do what he wants for that time will instill into his mind that 'I be bad, I have to sit. I dont want to sit so I'll be good'. And also when its time for him to get out you need to talk to him first. Tell him why he got put in time out and let him know that you love him. This addresses the issue and lets him know that even though he got punished he is still loved.

Being consistant and giving time outs is best! Good Luck!
