My son is the same way and age and he gets little temper if I tell him no he can't have the remote or cell phone or even taking away dirt out of his hands that he is about to put in his mouth. He will scream and yell and hit but he is only 15 months and I don't think he will know to sit still in time out. What has been working for me is saying "no baby that hurts mommie " and then redirecting him with a different toy or simply move him to a different part of the room and walk away by then he doesn't care about the remote or anything. I wouldn't spank my child at this age with out him understanding many words beside no and bottle. It would probably send the wrong message to him for instance if he didn't want me to do somthing he would start to hit me thinkning that what we are suppose to do.

There is always a diferrence between spanking your child and beating your child. Many people believe that spanking is wrong and many people believe spanking is necessary. I am one of those people who belive spanking is required once the child reach a certain age. Of course there are diferent methods of disciple from a quick swat on the hand or a quick pat on the back side (clothes on ofcourse). Either or can sometimes make a difference in raising a child. There are many people who grew up with such disciplined and has turned out very well and there are children who has never been spanked who turn out the same way, but there are those who has never been spank and he/she act like they are the parent instead of the parent themselves. Every parent has different methods of raising a child and I assume Jody that you give him all the love in the world and he still throws tantrum. Children will be children, but time outs are usually a nice route to go. At least that what many parents...myslef included as well as day cares do.

Hello Jody, I assume you dont believe in spanking your child at this age and if so, then "time-out seesions" should be the next route. Maybe 10-15 minutes and if the child keeps leaving the his/her seat before the 10-1 minutes are up, I suggest you seat him/her back into his/her chair...even if they continue to get up. It's a tedious task, but trust me...he/she will get it eventually.
