Hello all!! Advice needed!!
I am at my wits end with my DS 3.5 year old ( also have a DS 2 year old)
3 year old is behaving badly - hitting brother, shouting, being rude to me, throwing toys too. i tried using time out but he usually gets up and wanders about during the 3 mins. Also have tried putting him to his room but he will play with toys etc and he has recently been tearing his books during this time.
He is usually a very nice child but these outbursts are driving me crazy and I am struggling to cope.
I don't know how to deal with it to get somewhere. At kinder he is very well behaved and sociable, maybe a little quiet. When we are out or he has friends round he is so lovely and behaves well.
I have also tried positive reinforcement for the good behavior and saying that I don't like it when he hits, yells etc
Is this normal or am I doing something wrong????
