My one and a half-year-old has been very aggressive lately. He thinks it is funny when he hits and kicks anything and everything and throw stuff at people. He is a very strong boy. He has two older brothers who do not hit and are trying to stop him from doing it but he continues to and thinks it's just the funniest thing. Dad and I are at wits end, do not know what to do anymore. We've tried timeout bed yelling smacking hand, taking stuff away and nothing works. Any suggestions because I don't know what to do?
I know when I was a child, negative repercussions didn't work at all. You could take everything from me, I didn't care, I just wanted my freedom, lol.
BUT if you gave me something to look forward to, a reason to modify my behavior... then I did.
It might work for him too, never know.
