I get very frustrated with how to discipline my 1 year old. He sometimes throws really big fits when we will not let him pull the books off the bookshelf or go to another room we do not want him in or open cabinets. I know that obviously you can not expect much from a child this young, but how do I start now letting him know that this behavior is unacceptable. I want my son to be a Godly young man and I want to start by rearing him the right way early. I do not like to yell. I tell him firmly, "no" and redirect him. This seems to have no effect whatsoever. He goes right back for more and actually cries while looking at us because he knows he will get told no. Does anyone have an encouragement or ideas on how to discipline a 1 year old?
