my grandson is 3 and he has in past 3 months started to act out. he spits in my face, will hit, kick, tantrums, gag himself with his entire fist or other objects or He will throw his hands into hot food. He WANTS me to spank him..he will actually say that!! He was reaching for something hot and i said NO that will hurt you and swatted his hand...dont freak out ppl it was a swat NOT a smack...he looked at me and shoved both hands into HOT beans!! His dr said sleep deprivation...but he now takes naps and sleeps all night and its getting worse! I come from a generation that spanks and his grandpa want to whip his butt and i dont allow it, yes he has been spanked by me and it dis nothing but make him do MORE so spanking is not happening. time outs are a waste of time and exhausting! My grandson is with except preschool for 6 hrs in the week so I know he gets attention and isnt deprived. HELP????
