Re: 21month old behavioral issues
and it takes time.
My friend started putting her 15month old in timeout for hitting. And now he's coming up on 25months. He knows and most of the time he can stop himself..... but.... he still hits sometimes. and then he goes into timeout. Most of the time now, he starts to hit, then hugs because his mom taught him to hug instead of hit.
and I totally agree with teaching them other ways to show emotion. DD responded quickly to the whole 'let me kiss your ouchie' idea. Now instead of wailing like she's dying, she usually asks one of us to kiss it.
