My son started to be a handful at the age of 1 1/2. His vocabulary was always great! He is loving and feels remorse when ever he does something wrong. Today at school he had exceptional bad day:( He hits for no reason. If he has a toy in his hand he will walk by someone and hit them with it. He hits the teachers and use to hit us but doesn't anymore.
We have used time out and even spanked his little but. Nothing is working or changing his behavior. Tonight, my husband and I were on him a lot. He is 3 and was sent to the Directors room 4 times today. If he did something that was not nice or was not following directions we let him know that privileges would be taken. We did Advent and warned him that id he continued to shut off the candles we would not give him the privilege to turn them off. He touched we took away. We warned him that if he left the room tonight and did not stay in it we would take one blanket away and if continued we would take the other blanket and then his pillow. He loves those things. So, he left the room and my husband took one blanket. He is hysterical crying and I feel horrible. How much is to much when taking privileges away from a 3 year old? and am I ok by making him say sorry when he is wrong? Help me, this is taking it's toll on my husband and I. Please help!!!! He just turned 3 October 13th. Thank you!!
