I have a almost 3 year old son - i am divorced living in a different state have joint custody and my son is hitting and throwing things when he gets mad. I have tried time out, taking away toys, and taking him and sitting on the floor with him saying we dont hit these hands are for loving people not hurting them. nothing seems to work. I need some help please.

What I do with my kids who are 3 and 4 is to put them in timeout straight away for hitting. If they throw something whatever they have thrown is taken away, minimum for the rest of the day and they are given the option to throw a ball in the garden.

If they continue they get put in time out and whatever has been thrown is taken away until they can show me they know how to play properly.
