Out of the blue a few days ago, my son (2), hit a girl several times at the playland in a fast food restaurant. It was unprovoked, and I took him out and scolded him, made him apologize, and put him in "time out." Needless to say, he's not allowed at playland for a while. I thought maybe this was a random occurance, since he hasn't had any real mean streaks for a long time. However, today I got a report from the babysitter that he did the same thing to his buddy at daycare. He communicates fairly well, but he does not have an answer for me when I ask why he hit. I'm looking for ideas as to why this might be happening and what I can do to keep it from happening again. Thanks!
