Really need some guidance on this!
My 15mo DS is mostly well behaved, but recently started pulling peoples hair and hitting. I want to stop this habit as soon as possible, as my 5yo DD has Aspergers with severe SPD, so even a little hair pulling is agony to her!
He knows he shouldn't do it. As he's doing it he shouts "Ahk! NO!" (Which is exactly what i say when i try to stop him.)
My mum suggested doing it to him - so he realises how much it hurts. I remember when my brother was a toddler he used to bite me all the time - until i bit him back and he never did it again.
BUT, when i was little i used to pull my own hair out. It doesn't hurt me. And i have seen him pulling his own hair too so i guess he's the same. I did pull his hair last time he pulled on my hair and he just laughed at me. I have also seen him hit another little boy and the boy hit him back and DS laughed and hit him again!!
Really really don't know how to stop him doing this!!!
