I've posted before on this subject and sorry for repeating myself, but my grandson's behavior is intolerable. He is now 21 months old not talking very well yet, but I think his behavior goes further than not talking. I took him out today for McDonald's and then decided to take him shopping for a little while for fall clothes for him. He was good in the carriage for about a half hour and then it started. BY the time I got to the checkout, he was hitting me with a hanger and smacking me. Embarrassing to say the least!! The cashier just looked at me with that look like "Oh My God!!!" lol. This behavior has been going on for quite some time. If he doesn't get what he wants like getting out of his highchair without eating, lol, he throws a fit like banging his head against the back of the highchair. So now feeding him is a very stressful event. Dressing or changing him, he's kicking me, hitting me, etc., etc. If I take him out to play, when it's time to come in, of course he doesn't want to, and when I pick him up he head butts me or starts hitting me. When I was little, my mom would have beat the crap outta me, but this is a different time and age, and he's my grandson, so I've tried the time out thing, NOT WORKING!!! Sorry to admit that I've started tapping, and mind me I said TAPPING his diapered bottom, but that doesn't seem to be working either. I've never seen behavior like this. I'm really starting to think that something is really wrong with him. Don't know what, but doesn't seem too normal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I intend to tell his pediatrician about his speech delay and his abominable behavior.
