Hi All, My son is 19 months old. he gets over excited when he see other kids whom he knows well. In excitement he starts pulling their hair or clothes, sometimes scratches or bites. let me give example. we take him to gymboree play and music classes. its his favorite place. at first he use to play calmly and alone without disturbing other kids. but recently as he started recognizing everyone he disturbs evryone. he doesnt notice particular toy or equipment until other kids go and play with it. he goes and grab that toy or if its slide or small bridge he just walk by as if he didn't notice someone standing in middle. he tries to hug them ( only i know he is trying to hug, for other kids parents it looks like he is pushing). Indian parents understands that. but others what i observed is, just take their child away from that place. Am really feeling bad for this. i try to explain him. but he doesnt understand everything yet. he just started speaking 2 letter words. i try to explain him in sign language but i dont think hes getting it. today my neighbours daughter (4 yrs old) came to play. she was running with balloon in her hand. when ever she comes Shlok gets excited. she was not giving balloon and Shlok bit her so badly. her mom was not there. when she came i told her. shes my friend so she dint feel bad but told me try to explain him coz in india they will understand but here they wont. in school they call parents if kids do like this. Shlok is really going out of my hand. even at home if i say no(very firmly)he does it more. i try to give time out but just stands and run away. hes not getting that mamma is angry and this is punishment. how do i give time out. Am just scared what he will do in his terrible twos. sorry so looong.......... plz some one advice. how to tell him that what he is doing is bad.
