Interesting enough I've had this same issue w a few children. I have a question, how much attention are you giving this? I mean in regards to how upset you are getting or if it's turned into a daily stressor that your son can expect as soon as he gets home. Children this age don't care about the concept of friends like adults might. They have no concept ...

Sounds like you found who has the dominate personality in your sons. Asking or telling a 23 month old boy is about as useful as telling a 23 year old boy not to do something. My suggestion is to quickly address this situation by intervening, stating in a phrase which you say the same way every time what the unwanted behavior was, then immediately start a ...

As for ways to handle being punched by other kids, if he sees them trying to punch him he can try to avoid being punched. Once I sometimes had to move a very large goat by dragging the heavy metal block he was chained to. And three different times the goat charged at me. Each time I caught him by the horns. And instead of hitting him like some of my hot ...

Some children ask "Why?" so they can better understand your ruling. Some are even able to then make other changes in plans having gained this information. It sounds like this fits your child. Others ask "Why?" so they have something to argue with. Most of them do so with simple "no we won't" kind of argument, nothing sophisticated. The first time you meet ...

I would reiterate that it's your household and if he would like to be invited back, he needs to respect any time that you say "No, not right now", no matter what the reason is. I hope that your back gets to feeling better. That's a tough injury to have.

I've got a child about the same age and about the same size, and I definitely understand the difficulty you're having. First off, don't expect to have a 100% perfect solution. All children misbehave from time to time - it's how they find their limits, how they find out what is okay, and how they find their self identity. A child who never misbehaves ...

It seems like every time he does something naughty, it is in response to something another child did. I call this self-defense. The problem is, he is huge for his age, and at some point if this carries on he could really hurt another child If he only does it to deffend himself, I would be more concerned on his own health as he seems to get hit by ...

First, try to figure out the feelings going on that are resulting in aggressive behavior. Work on resolving that and you will go a long way to solving the issue of biting. Second, when you're in the moment and need an immediate solution, place all the focus on what you do want instead of what you don't want. So "give me a hug (or kiss)" or "give each ...

Well, we've tried something new: When they're about to bite, we tell them to stop and to make a kiss instead. It seems to work pretty well, we'll see how this goes.

Its very easy actually. When your kid hurt herself, like falling, bumping table etc. You just say auw auw. Do it everytime. Then next time when she hurts you or someone else, you say the same. Soon she will understand the relation of auw auw and pain. At some point when she hurts herself she will also say auw auw.
