    Default Pushing/biting/hitting =( how to deter my toddler

    My son has always been a bit rough, would hit or push when he was frustrated but now as he's gotten older he's started pushing, biting & hitting for no apparent reason. 50% of the time it seems to be because someone is doing something he doesn't like but the rest of the time it seems just random! My sister & niece has just moved in with us, they are 8.5months apart & it has seemed to have gotten worse since they have lived here. Anyway, my question was does anyone have any advice on how to stop him lashing out?

    Default Pushing/biting/hitting =( how to deter my toddler

    Honestly the only way to stop is to consistently get down to his level and say " we don't hit , bite etc" and remove him and distract him from the situation,
    DS ( who is 2 today!!!) started to do this when my 8 year old niece moved in with us, I think to be honest they are just protecting their territory so to speak and asserting themselves so they lash out, he did it for a few days now rarely does it and if he does we correct and redirect him!
