Ds is just over 3.5 years, he is well spoken and full of beans just like most young boys!
He is also very well mannered, lots of "please, thanks, sorry...etc" and lots of "I love you" plus kisses.
The only problem is he is rough at daycare (he is only there 1 day per week) and rough with his 1 year old brother.
Just lots of snatching toys, breaking down others blocks, random hitting etc.
I've tried and tried to encourage him to be more gentle, use words, ask to share etc. but it seems to go in one ear and out the other.
I'm so confused and upset.
I dont know if I'm disciplining him right or saying the right things :-(

Have you tryed time outs that's what we do if mr 3yo get to out of hand or to rough with his little brother

We do timeout in the corner, but give him a warning first in a very firm voice.
OK....and on the odd occasion we've warned him he will get a smack too ( l understand this is not for everyone though!)

Hi all, timeouts don't work very well, he just "leaves" the corner, I have to stand right in front of him and practically restrain him there!

Some kids don't "get" time out, or are too young to understand what the point is. It sounds like he is not ready. Try redirection and distraction first and foremost, then a firm "no" and remove him from the situation. Or remove the item if he is using something to hit etc. Good luck!

Your DS sounds exactly like my DS1 only mine doesn't go to daycare.
He doesn't like timeouts either. Sometimes he will cooperate and go other times I really have to explain to him that he needs some time to chill out and calm down because he is getting out of control.
