brigid: Two adults and a child, wearing gas masks, peer into a pram. (parenting)
[personal profile] brigid
I have a 17 month old who hits/shoves when frustrated and who throws things, sometimes hard things, sometimes at people.

Any suggestions on curbing this behavior? He can follow simple directions like "bring your shoes to mama" and "go get your bowl" and "pick up your ball," but either doesn't understand or else ignores "no hitting," "do not hit," "do not throw," etc. Also he gets caught up in the moment.

We currently are saying "no," "no throwing/hitting," and stroking his hand while saying "remember to be gentle." Any other suggestions?
