My son is 19 and a half months old and hes constantly slapping me, He gets so mad if something doesnt go his way and starts a tantrumand hits himself and others around him. He is very independent but if the word 'no' is said to him or he wants something he cant have he throws a fit. I've tried putting him in his crib for 5 minute timeout but seems to do nothing. Any ideas on how I could stop his hitting? he is a very pleasant boy and usually happy but when he hits ya it hurts and its just getting frustrating because I dont know what to do about it.
any suggestions would help alot
