I am in real need of some guidance here. At bedtime we have our routine and it works really well for us. Recently, my 2 yr old son started slapping my face and chest repeatedly after we finish reading books and turn out the light. I firmly tell him, "No hitting. Hitting hurts." and tell him if he does it again he's going right to bed with no cuddles. EVERY time he does it again. So I put him in bed, skipping the rest of our routine, & leave the room. This does upset him some, but he's not stopping. I don't feel it's a good time to do a time out, since we've just spent all this time getting him to relax & get ready for bed. Any ideas of things I can try?
