He is getting mean

My son is really getting mean when he is told no. He bites hits and pinches to the point of bruising. I will tap his bum or put him down away from me and tell him no, that is not ok. This does not seem to help though. Any one else having this problem? Any suggestions? Any and all help would be great.

I am thinking maybe time out for 1 minute every time he does it. If he does it 5 times a day...he is going to time out 5 times a day for 1 minute.

The general rule is 1 minute for every year.
