Ok, so my little boy has just turned one! Since he was very small he has been a hair puller!! I discouraged this from the second it began, well, because it wasnt very comfortable having fistfulls(no matter how small) of hair being pulled out!!!
I Passed it off as a reflex when he was very small, and then as a phase as he got older, but now, he LUNGES for peoples hair, not just mine, and YANKS it!!! and giggles hysterically!!! i've tried saying no, and detatching his little fingers, repeating the word no and putting him down but it just makes him pull harder :/ it doesnt matter if its short hair, long hair, or tired up hair!! He even goes for his grandads, his uncles, and my partners chest hair at every given oppurtunity. As in pulling the neck of their shirts to find it and pull.
Has any body elses child taken a shine to hair pulling like this?? He finds it hilarious no matter what i say or do and he is only one, so im not really sure is their anything i can do?!?!?! any advice would be helpful!!! :/
