    Default Biting, hitting and pinching

    My 2.5 yr old son continues to have aggressive behavior mostly when he is told no or when he gets angry. I keep trying to stop him and remind him gentle hands but he keeps doing it at home and at daycare. He is learning to talk alittle slower so I think this maybe contributing. Any tips as this mommy is starting to feel hopeless.

    Could it be frustration from not being able to communicate well yet? Ds used to hit a lot (before 2 though) as he didn't know how to communicate with other kids.

    Carers at childcare said to remind him to do something more appropriate - ie. If he wanted someone's attention to wave and say hello rather than hitting.

    Default Biting, hitting and pinching

    This sort of behaviour is quite common when kids are struggling to communicate and often comes from frustration. I'd try to focus on helping him find positive strategies for explaining what he wants rather than on any type of discipline. Also if it's the "no" that leads to frustration maybe try restructuring the way you approach that? Instead of saying "no, we can't go outside." Would it help if you said "we can't go outside right now but let's do x and then we'll go outside later." ? Or "we can't do that now but would you like to do x or y?" I don't know if that helps but I thought I'd make the suggestion anyway.

    Eta: just realised this is an old post! Sorry! I hope this issue has resolved for you op.
