Scary stuff!!

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

My son is 17 months old and I have noticed lately he has become really mean. I'm with him during the day except for Tuesdays & Thursday when he goes to daycare while I attend school. I'm not sure what is going on. He bites, scream, scatched, slaps & chokes me!! It is only me he does it to. I'm not sure why this is happening!! I love my baby and I don't yell or hit him. Occasionally I will raise my voice of tap his hand for hitting.At first I thought he was just frustrated because he can't say what he wants or what is wrong. Am I just making excuses?? What is wrong with my baby?? :(

Honestly, I say when he does hit scratch bite screams slaps anything .... TIME OUT .. one warning and thats it.... i know as a mother you don't want to punish your children but if you are the only one he is doing it to wouldn't you think he knows he can get away with it? b/c i would understand if its to daycare, but you are leaving him and he would be acting out.... not saying that is the prob or not but i could see that if it was happening in daycare. But being that he is only doing it to you at home then maybe it is that he knows he can get away with it. At this age he is hitting his terrible two's. So this would prob be good time for discipline / time out / punishment. put him in a corner and every time he gets out you put him right back in time out he will and should stop after a while when he realizes it lasting all day and you are not giving up. That or if it was my child .... my momma always raised me with spankins.... but thats all the parents choice.

maybe he learned that at day care but maybe this is the only way he knows how to show his anger my son is 17 months also and he can be a bit mean to me but it doesn really seem like he knows that climbing on my tummy can hurt the baby that is inside or that putting all his weight on his hand on my chest hurts he bits but mostly if you stick your finger in his mouth and i just tell him not to bite and i might pop hiim in the mouth if he bites just out of the blue were ganna bite him back and pop him sometimes when he is climbing on me hell choke me but i know he doesnt really know but i do think its starting to get a bit out of hand so were ganna start teaching him what happens when he does that like ouch and everything else
