Okay, recently my little guy has been screaming really loud when he is upset about something. I try to figure out what may be bothering him, so i try food, rest, playing with him. It will sometimes make him feel better which i good. What i want to know that i am having a problem with is when he is sitting in his highchair and has food on there and is throwing it off and i tell him no, dont do that! He will look at me and then throw some more off. I get so frustrated with this behavior and i dont know if he knows that there are consequences with his bad actions yet. He seems to give me a look when I come over to him when he is doing something i dont like. I have spanked his hand before to let him know that what he is doing is wrong if he keeps doing it on purpose. I am just wanting to know if he would have an understanding of this whole disipline concept. He does not talk yet only except a couple words and babbles and makes all kinds of sounds. I dont want to be spanking him yet if he cant connect the bad behavior to the spanking cause i dont want him to not know why he is getting spanked. I dont want to emotionally damage him. I dont know, its so confusing! Can you help with some good advice?
