My 2 year old used to be very well mannered, but recently he has started to become very hateful. He hits, kicks, yells, tells me no, and throws things. How to I handle these situations. He is my first child so I try the best I can but it seems everything I do doesn't work.

My 3 year old is very unruly but he also has sensory proceory disorder so b4 i found out thats what he had i was so frustrated with him i even yelled at him witch of course only made him worse now i am with little. Learner's here and they have taught me to get down to his level on your knees so you are not in a threating manner even though your not going to hurt him they dont like when we stand over top of them also they have told me to just put my hand up and say stop but do it in a calm manner if they dosent calm down then put him in his room or a chair maybe see if that works only for 2 minutes thats how old he is. To us 2 minutes is nothing to a toddler but its a life time. Please explain to him why he is there and if he stays there for his 2 minutes then give him a kiss and a cuddle tell him your proud of him for doing what you asked him to do. People mistake little ones not a understanding but they understand more then we think. Dont forget this is normal toddler behavior he will get better as he learns. With my older children i take things of them eg my 16 yr old daughters phone for a week every body nos how much a girl likes her phone. Good luck hope this helps out.

Have you tryed just take him by the hand put him in his room for two minutes but tell him why you have put him there and when he comes out give him a hug and tell him he was a good boy for doing what you asked. I have 4 children my oldest is 16 right down to 3 so i can tell that this is quite normal they start to get there own way of doing things. They tend not to like it when mum or dad say they carnt do something he will get better consisty is the key. His is not going to like going to his room and will fight you but if you keep going with it he will learn that it is just as upsetting for you as it is for him if he comes out agian just take by the hand and calmly walk him back to his room but try not to talk to him while you do this as this can give them the attention they want. I have 3 boys and have had to do this with my own 3 year old he wouldnt stay in bed after about a week he learned that bed timewas sleep time and stayed in bed. I can asure you he dose still try witch again is normal. Little ones have so much going on in the little minds it can be quite confusioning for them. Make sure you tell him that when he bites or kicks that it hurts you and your sad when he dose it. And no is one of the words all toddlers like to say its easy for them to say he will get better as he gets older your doing a great job.
