He is two....part of being two is MISbehaving. He is just testing his boundries and as long as the rules stay the same he will get bored when he does not get the reaction he wants.

hes too young for time outs i think. my 16 month old son behaves terribly sometimes and i just stand him up straight and tell him no and not to do whatever hes doing. correct him when hes doing the act. if hes hitting, grab his hand, tell him no hitting and have him give a kiss instead and tell him to be nice. after a while, even though theyre misbehaving theyll understand that its wrong because you say no in a stern voice all the time

I agree but they will start being terrible at 2 because they become aware of other's emotions and learn to push buttons and it's up to parents to teach them the right things to do.

my opinion about discipline is simple.... consistency. if you are firm and consistent then they will get the point. I have 3 kids and i have done the same with all three. No terrible twos. or Worse threes. They are awesome kids (if i do say so myself lol) but yeah they are kids and they still test me on different stuff but they know i wont back down anytime soon. Sometimes you have to get a little more creative with disciplining techniques...sometimes i make my older kids do wall sits for like 30 seconds and then they have to tell me why they were in trouble and why it was wrong and apologize (if needed) to someone. :) its effective and they strengthen their legs all at the same time.

"There's no such thing as terrible twos...just parents that let their kids be terrible."

yes we have kneeled down and told him that hitting is not nice its mean and spitting is yucky.he seems to get the gross part then he just does it again or something else that is just as bad.also he know ouch cause when he falls he says ouch or ow,does it matter if the tv is on, the chair is in the living room? or his chair is an adults recliner?.

as far as time outs and saying thats mean and so on in my opinion is right. I would make sure that everyone who is around him knows what you want as far as disipline. also keep it consistant. example having him in time out for one thing but only talking to him about another isn't going to get him to listen. children need consistancy. hope this helps
