My one year old grandson hits, bites, throws things and laughs about it when you try to scold him. He also touches things he absolutely knows that its a "no no" and again laughs you and does it again and again. Example 1 ...he threw an old computer keyboard at my head and left a big knot on my head...example 2...he plays with the electrical outlets (pulls out the "safety" plug guards). When I remove him from the situation, (holding him on my lap as a 'time out'), he just goes back to it when I put him down. Can anyone help me stop this behavior?? I have tried all i can think of to deter it....scolding (anything from a firm NO to a light smack on his fingers), taking away objects that he throws for a little while, I've ignored the behavior...but he throws things hard enough that i've have bruises all over, including a black eye on 3 occasions, he also threw something at my face and cut open my nose.
