My son is our youngest of four children and he is our only boy. He started smacking in july. He has also started throwing terrible tantrums as well, violently thrashing his body around and screaming like he's being hurt. None of our three older daughters have never acted this way, even as toddlers or now as teens. One time my son got mad because I took the remote away from him and he smacked me so hard he bruised my nose and knocked my glasses off my face.

My husband and I also don't agree on how to handle this behavior. My husband smacks his hand, which only gets my son to smack Daddy's hand back. I stick him in his crib when he smacks me, which I also know isn't helping, but, I am at a loss as to what to do. I've never been smacked by one of my children before this, and trying to reason with a 14 month old is easier said than done. What can I do to stop this behavior?

Could be possible that he is the only son and he got three sisters and that kind of makes him feel that he is special and sometimes kids behave this way to get the attention and turn violent...i have really seen such behavior in certain kids who are like the only son or daughter and also youngest....
