At the end of Oct. my husband, son and I moved into a house. In the last couple weeks, it seems like his behavior is so chaotic. One minute he's hyper, getting into things, throwing things, biting, and being a booger! Next minute he's laying on the floor playing with a blanket or car, all mellow. I wonder, is this because of the move? or is it because he's finally starting w/ the terrible two's? Either way it doesn't matter if I put him in time out or smack his hand, he will get right back up and get into things. Some days it seems like all I do is yell at him and put him in time out like 5 times a day. I don't want to have this type of relationship w/ my son. With the cold weather we don't go outside and he used to play outside like 4 times a day in the summer. I need to find a way to discipline him and/or help him run off his excess energy. I live in a small community so play groups and indoor parks are not an option we have. Any advice?View Thread
