He just turned one this month. i just realized i was not specific at all when posting this sorry... well we moved to NY from Fl/ In Fl we were alone with no family or friends to really help us so it was pretty easy to maintain a regular schedule without any extra opinions. Now we're staying at my grandmothers house in NY til we're able to save enough money and move on our own. I just gave birth to my daughter so i know he may be a little jealous. He gives his sister kisses all the time and its so sweet but i can tell its for attention. I feel so bad that i cant give him attention 24/7 anymore and i must split my time between the two :( i dont know what to do in the following situations
1) he hits his sister, sometimes he slaps her, sometimes he throws his bottle at her or her shoe :/ i tried lightly slapping his hand and that created my next problem
2) he hits himself. when its not his way or if we say Noooo thats not nice he slaps himself :(
3) he throws a lot of fits/tantrums
he seems jealous of his little sister also... how do i make him feel better?
what do i do? i was raised in a strict home and got hit for every bad thing i did and all that did was help me rebel and leave home as a teen. but being too nice i've seen kids who turn out worse :/
