Rough 2yr old

I need some advise. I have a 2 year old son who plays rough and is constantly trying to hit or jump on his little friends. I've tried time outs, every time he does something wrong but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any advise would be great. Thanks.

Stick with the time-outs, it's hard but eventually he will get the picture. The time outs should be one minute for how old they are, so that would be 2 minutes. Make sure the time outs are in a place that is BORING, and do not acknowledge him until he is out, so no talking to him etc. It worked for my kids, but they are girls, and not so rough as boys. Make sure when you send him to time out you are explaining why, how it hurts people when he hits etc. and that it is unacceptable! Hope this helps...
