Smacking

posted Mar 27, 2011 20:42:23 by mommy_of_two
My son is 3 and a half. He has a terrible habit of randomly smacking you in the face. Although, it is usually during play, (he does think he's playing) I want to stop him. This would be a horrible thing when he starts preschool.
So. I thought about doing timeout everytime he does it. What do you guys think?

I think I agree with you. Try asking him how he would feel if someone smacked him? Then tell him to sit in time out and think about it. Hopefully this will help!

I never really asked him to think about it. I need to start doing that!

It is easy to not discipline a sweet child "as we as mommys see them" but that sweet child will be a teenager and adult one day and it is better for us to teach him now then for him/her to learn it the hard way later.

I completely agree with you NewMommy!! If our kids aren't disciplined now, they will be out of control when they are older!
