A child needs discipline and rules. A toddler shouldn't be hitting biting or telling a parent no. A parent should say no to a child as early as 4 months, children can tell difference in tones of voices. I have a two, almost three, year old and she knows if she behaves badly a consequence will take place. Kids know what they can get away with, dnt b fooled! This article enables bad behavior

I'm glad to see that other moms are having the same problems with biting, hitting and throwing things. I felt so alone, but now I know it's normal. I can't wait until she grows out of this!

How will they grow out of it if you let them get away with it? terrible twos will turn to terrible 16s with this article.

I'm a mom to a three year old who bites other kids in school , i have been trying to correct his behavior however a parent has been coming up to me being very threating . She even told her five year old to punch my three year old . I don't condemn my sons behavior however this parent is taking things to far how can i deal with this in a positive way .

Thanks for this article. will try it at home. never had problems with my daughter hitting and throwing things until a few months after starting nursery. i didn't know how to tell her not to do those things she some of her schoolmates do without labelling them as bad or undisciplined. :-0 ... hope this works.

I'm a 2 yr old teacher and I'm glad to see this article. I often have to let parents know that this is 2yr old behaviors. I agree that these situations have to be met head on but not with frustration we must model good behavior and help 2 yr olds understand their emotions and work through this! Great job on the article! I have 12 2yr olds in my class and trust me everyone of them are exhibiting forms of these behaviors. You just have to relax and realize it is temporary and they will get through it if you use positive behavior approaches!!

Thank Goodness I have found something that is not only rational but makes sense. I have twins a boy and a girl. My daughter is very calm but takes a beating from her brother, however, my daughter throws tantrums like no one's business. My son bites - hits - pushes and pulls her hair. He lashes out at me as well. I have been very concerned about this for what seems to be forever. They are both 2 years old and at times - I feel very beside myself. I'm glad I'm not the only one going through this and I am happy to know such articles are available. I'm still happy to follow up with our family doctor and still open to any workshops and other online correspondence available.
