My 14 month old son is just a ball of energy. He was in dayhome for a couple of months before I decided that I missed him too much. I have now opened up my own dayhome. In his dayhome he was the youngest of 4 children, now in this new dayhome he is the oldest of 3. Just recently he has been displaying very agressive behaviour (pushing, hitting, pulling hair, etc) to the other children. I do not believe that he is going it out of jealousy but more to see cause and effect. The problem is that repeated taking him away from the situation, sternly talking to him and redirecting him has no affect. One moment all the children can be playing together amazing and the next thing you know he is pushing someone over. I am struggling with what to do. I am worried about this behaviour as in the future my husband and I would like more children but I wouldn't trust his behaviour around a newborn, any advice?
