Ditto dove and sarah. He's an infant. They don't know anything about the world. Constant supervision is required. He's not being 'mean', he's an infant. From the sounds of your post, he's 6 and a schoolyard bully! It's ok, mom! Hang in there!

Sarah is 100% right. He's still an infant... they don't 'make friends' at that age and they require a LOT of close supervision to not 'attack' other children as they are still learning how their bodies move and what they can do. Just keep teaching him 'gentle touch' and stop stressing about this.... He's not being mean. He's being a baby.

He's ten months! They don't make friends at this age. It is also common for kids to swing at each other. You must be vigilant and supervise him and every time he goes to hit a child you take his hands firmly in yours and say sternly "No hitting!" He will learn. I expected you to say he was six or seven.

He is almost ten months and 100% boy for sure I don't know he is just never around anybody but adults so it's hard to teach him to be nice to other kind we tell him nice when petting dogs and nice when he is play with our hair but it is just something about other kids
