I agree. try telling him that we do not act that way. If he's like my 2 1/2 year old then he is dying to be a big boy. I tell him hisbahavior doesn't seem like a big boy to me and he'll usually stop. Hope this helps!

Is this when you tell him no or are trying to disipline him? My daughter used to smash her head on the floor if we told her no or she didn't get her own way. It was hard to watch but by ignoring it and walking away when possible it got her to understand it didn't get her what she wanted. She stopped doing it after awhile. Try telling him we do not hit people or throw things and place him down somewhere safe where there is no one to hit or nothing to throw. When he has calmed down tell him we don't hit or throw things and if he is calm he can come back and join the family. I also have the same problem, I'm the 'meany Mommy' and Daddy is a push over, someone has to be the disiplinarian though. Good luck
