Controlling Bad behavior
My 2 year old (only kid) has started being a two year old. Lol. Its not as terrible as i thought (yet!) but we have a family staying over who have 2 kids 6yr and 8 months and my guy is having a hard time. At best he didn't notice the baby was around and is minding his business and happily ran around the older one and they played. But on the other end he constantly grabbed at everything the older one was remotely interested in and worst of all he threw a huge toy at the baby out of nowhere (luckily it missed her head but still freaked her out). even up untill then, we had to constantly watch him around her as he tried to touch/poke her etc and i even kept telling him to be gentle/careful etc with the baby. It seemed to have the opposite effect. We did timeout after, i spoke with him about bad behavior and put him to bed saying he cant play anymore, no hugs no story time no bed time kisses etc. He was upset for a bit but don't know if it will have any effect on him (hopefully, but we will see how he will be tomorrow). Frankly i have no idea on how to discipline. He is otherwise a pretty chill kid. Gets distracted pretty easy and is not too adamant. Doesn't throw huge tantrums. Till now we only did timeout but nothing this serious has happened and i want to know what are some good ways to teach him bad behavior (hitting, grabbing, hurting etc) is not ok. one thing is he doesn't stay upset very long (which is usually a very good thing) which makes timeouts/punishing pointless. Nowadays he just goes and sits in the corner for a minute and then comes back smiling when i ask him to. Should i just keep going even then. Would he eventually understand?
