My 18th month old son is 'full of beans' should i say lol..hes very energetic from the time he slides off of his bed in the morning till the time he goes to sleep. He is cute at times but he fully knows what he's doing and every little thing he's not allowed to touch, then he glares at me and bamm, tips his bottle on the floor or pulls his plastic draw out and pulls his clothes out of it, then sits in the draw, or he throws the tv remote and my husband's watch out of the window because he knows he's not allowed to do it. I firmly tell him no and i have been consistent but i feel like i am getting nowhere. He is my second child but first son. I have been told that it is because he is a boy and that boys will always be boys. My daughter was the complete opposite to him. Any advise out there would be great or stories please :)

Pay attention to what he likes most. Maybe colouring, ride on toys, pretend play etc. Play with him (boys love soccer and football).

Thank you for your post. Yes he does play with children his own age and he seems to get more excited when he is surrounded by kids, which is not a bad thing. You could be right about the whole playgroup thing. i will look into that :)

Have you tried taking him outside or to a park and letting him run around with some other kids his age? Maybe you could find a play group in your area or meet up with other moms whose children are just as energetic as yours.
