Does anyone have any tips/experience with violent behaviour in a 3yo and how to deal with it?? Is it normal behaviour?
I.e kicking walls, throwing toys, punching dogs, lying on top of cat, hit me once and his new sister once. He has also started screaming at the top of his lungs all the time. It's so draining to be honest, we have tried time out, yelling, speaking gently and calmly and sticker reward for good behaviour. Any other ideas?? 😔
Hoping someone can tell me it's a phase and he will grow out of it, he's such a sweet and funny boy otherwise.
Eta. We've just had a baby so I'm aware this is probably not helping, but this behaviour started about 2-3 weeks before she was born and now much worse since she arrived. We are making sure he is getting plenty of love and attention.
It also isn't in an aggressive manner it almost like he is hyper active and thinks it's super fun, he's not angry when he does it.
