Well my ds is 2.5 and he's is very good at home and with his baby sister but he isn't good with younger kids :( he trys to be rough and won't share. I teach him sharing and he's good with us. I do still put him in time out or his room if he is bad after warnings. I'm just afraid to let him play with other younger kids. He yells tales toys away and shoves :( I do discipline but he still kept acting up. Any suggestions? He's fine with older kids I don't get it. Maybe jes jelous of his baby sister?

I think its the age. My kids are having a really hard time sharing. I wouldn't keep him away from other kids ( unless they're really little) I still do a lot of playdates even though my kids tantrum frequently. Just keep reinforcing it.

I agree it could be his age, but be consistent with him. Continue your time outs etc.

I think it's an age thing! It sounds like you are doing everything right. Just give him some time and I sure it will get much better!

My 2yr old is kind of the same also. Hope it don't last long. Good luck!

It's def the age! This is the age where they are just beginning to understand what sharing is and how to behave. Positive parenting is extremely helpful. Show him how he should behave and teach him how to share.  Don't keep him away from the other kids because then he'll never learn. It gets better with age I promise!  : )

Stay consistent on his time outs and discipline and he will be out of that phase before you know it:)

Yea I think he just needs to get used to playing and sharing with other kids since he's. Not in day care or anything.

Yea that's the hard part the consistency. Its hard putting him in time out when dh is at work and I have a teething 6 month old. So when he won't sit in time out if I'm holding the baby I have to put him in his room. Seems to be working
