My 14 month old beautiful baby boy is quite rough. He throws his toys, books, bottles and hits me and his brothers and sisters then laughs. He doesn't go to daycare and unfortunetly we don't have any contact with other babies. As we left Domestic Violence (before bubby was born) I have a strict no smacking, throwing or screaming household. We do not laugh back and say "No - gentle" then try to teach him by gently patting. While he is quite advanced in his intellect and ability to understand things is mindblowing, I cannot get this through to him.
He does have a stuffed penguin that he adores that he always hugs and kisses and he rocks his sisters dolls so he does know how to be gentle.
Any suggestions would help me - I am at a loss.
