Naughty Chair...

Nichole - posted on 02/13/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




My 2 year old is recently hitting. He knows it is naughty and doesn't do it hard, but when he gets mad he will hit me or his dad. We consistently tell him when he does it "if you hit me again, you will have to sit in the naughty chair" and usually he doesn't do it again but I would like him to stop doing it all together...I guess what I am wondering is, should we just put him directly into the naughty chair when he hits us without warning him first or continue giving him the warnings first?

Also, after the time out and sorrys and hugs are done, try telling them a simple phrase, like no hitting and have them repeat it back to you.

i agree anything else give a warning but hitting, biting, and spitting etc never give a warning i did this give warning first for the hitting and my daughter would only do it once and wouldnt have to deal with punishment. she started to pick up on this and would continue to do so every other day. i thought no ill put her there when she did it, she hated it but it worked like a charm :) hope this helps

We were in your position recently with our 2 1/2 year old. When it comes to hitting, biting, pushing, and other physical aggressions, there is no warning in our house. She goes straight to the corner for a time out. If she rebels, we pick her up and put her back, doubling her time out length. Once time is up, she has to apologize and give hugs.
