When you tell him "no" he'll hit you. If he's frustrated, he'll hit you. If he's frustrated or doesn't get his way, he'll go find something to throw. I've put him in his room for timeout and he has ran out of his room to find me so he can hit me! In desperation I smacked his diaper clad bottom to make him stop. Big surprise that didn't work. He doesn't talk very well but he does communicate really well with pointing and trying to make sounds with his sign language. I know the lack of speach is some of the problem. But there's got to be a way for him to show his frustration another way.
Our older son never did this. I feel like I'm in a losing battle! Please help.
