    Default 2yo bad behaviour

    I'm just after some help. DS is so naughty doesn't listen at all. I try and remain calm etc.

    He punches, pulls hair, kicks his 3yo sister. I'm so stressed about it.

    We have a hearing test tomorrow because we always have to yell at him for anything the ENT booked this.

    He's meeting most milestones but I just don't know why he's so aggressive and says no to everything. My Dd gets so upset and then retaliates I am getting so stressed out 😭

    All I can contribute is diet. I know that before we completely cleaned up my daughters diet, she was a handful!
    My current subject from my studies is nutrition and the effects of additives and preservatives and mainly sugar in children is quite dire.

    He doesn't eat anything :/ well he does but bananas, chicken, steak and yoghurt. He's still on a couple of feeds during night.

    We have feeding issues, sleeping issues I was thinking he was autistic but he talks and makes eye contact etc

    I wish you well. I suggest if you find nothing wrong with his hearing, perhaps a child behaviour specialist ?? I would also suggest diet, perhaps allergies?? intolerances.?? good luck, Marie.

    Monnie , think about trying him on fish oil supplements, a lot of recent studies are finding omega 3 reduces behavioural problems in children , maybe talk to your naturopath , worst case it's still good for his health any way!

    Ohhhh yes you're right!!! My 2.5 DD takes fish oil supplements and we ran out for about 6 weeks and her behaviour amped up again. Back on them and she's all good again. We use Nordic naturals

    What are the current consequences for his behaviour? Have you experimented with discipline techniques? My two year old's behaviour improved dramatically after a couple of days of consistent time out, could that be useful?

    He won't sit in time out!! I try as DD gets time out I continue to try he shuffles out of it. And I think it's abuse to put him in his high chair there (hope that makes sense!) haha.

    We give him a multi vitamin floreditrix (I might spelt that wrong @Elijahsmum) I'll try fish oil he also has iron and magnesium !!

    He has arrowroot biscuits and cheese that's about it for packaged foods as everything has dairy and the 'dairy free stuff' has WAY too much salt. If he has anything it's a rice cake.

    I smack his hand and say please don't do that apologise to your sister. When he's naughty or misbehaving. I explain what he's done wrong etc. they don't have stuff to take away we don't really have toys I don't like junk

    They have Lego and books but that's about it!

    Fair enough. I do time out with the door shut in a room she cannot exit herself. In the past I might have seen that as too harsh/scary and it would be so for a sensitive child. But the behaviour from her was becoming abusive toward us, and causing me serious strain with stress, health issues so I reckon, you gotta do what you gotta do! The consequence has to be unpleasant enough to dissuade them from that action in future. I know some people get really good results with "1, 2, 3 Magic" but I haven't tried it.
