My son over the last few months likes to grab faces and smack them, not always hard, but sometimes if he is tired (or mad) he can really give a good smack. I don't spank him or anything (obviously) but if he does it too hard I do take his hand, give it a firm pat, and say No. Of course which makes him cry.
Does anyone else have a little one who likes to grab, pull, pat, smack faces? I wouldn't mind if I was the only person in the whole world, but obviously when he gets older this is not a good behavior. Or is this just normal?
When he does it I try to pull his hands away and show him how to be gentle and nice... which obviously is not working so far...
