Football players do it on the ass.
Baseball players do it with wood.
Musicians long for one.
But in our house, you in time out...
...if you hit.
And Big D. has been in time out multiple times a day. He hits me. He hits daddy. He hits the cat. He hits the baby. He hits his friends. He even hits himself.
I don't know what to do.
To make things even more irritating, he hits, says "no hitting" then goes in for a hug... I just can't stop the initial action.
Where does he get the idea from? We don't hit him. We don't hit each other. I don't get it!
Thankfully he doesn't bite.
I'd love for this to be a post on "how to stop your kid from hitting," but alas, no, it's the opposite.
We encourage the positive, "kisses for Cotter-Pin" ( our cat) "Amelia love big-big hugs, big hugs are the best!"
It doesn't help.
This has got to stop, and I don't know how to start.
Suggestions on this one are appreciated.
If he grows up to be a ball player, or a musician, it might be appropriate. For now, at 2, I'm at a loss.
