Hi, I have a 3 year old boy and a 1 year old boy. I am also babysitting a 2 year old boy. The 2 year old is a real pusher. He pushes the 1 year old any chance he gets. He's not angry, he just walks by him and pushes him. Some times he hits him. He throws things at my 3 year old and will play too rough. But that's it with him, he basically just attacks my baby. I've tried time outs, star charts if he's good, taking toys away....nothing is working. He'll literally get out of a t/o and walk up to my son and push him down. It's crazy! I can't have him out of my site for 10 seconds or someone is crying! Has any one else gone through this? What did you do to stop the behaviour? I'm currently giving him a t/o if he pushes or hits. Then I tell him that if he can't be nice to the boys that he can't play with them. So for 1 hour, he plays by himself, like sitting in a chair and reading, that sort of thing.
