Your post was a little confusing, but you need to put you foot down, set the rules, stick by them. Put him in timeout and don't give in -- it will help you later. Anyway two is a wild age for kids -- they get fustrated because they try to communicate and sometimes can't. You ever hear of the terrible two's ....

Well Lizzy it seems you are having a lot of trouble. My 18 month old daughter has been getting out of control and I have NO clue where she has gotten it from. There is NO abuse in my home and she out of nowhere decided she was going to start hitting, punching, kicking, biting... uncontrolably lashing out. I am newly pregnant with our second child and I kinda fell "she knows" and that is why she is acting out.

My advice, and what has been working for me... every time Karli has a fit, hitting, kicking, punching, or trying to bite me I grab her hands, feet, etc. put them by her side, holding firm but not hard enough to burt her. I tell her NO, hitting, etc. is bad... then I put her in her crib for about 2 minutes... if she lashes out in the crib she satys there a minute longer.

Honestly she is only 18 months and only half understands, but being firm with her for the past 3 weeks, she has not hit, punched, kicked, or anything since... it did take at least 5 - 7 times a day everyday for 3 weeks, but she is no longer lashing out like she was.

I hope it may help - as I said a little different, but it has worked for me.

lizzy, i completely know what your going through, my daughter is now 5, and i am still dealing with this. and with alot of therapy and medicine, she is slowly on her way to recovery, i am not sure where your located, but try to see if they have a child behavior center in your town. and just start drawing pictures about how your feeling and ask" why are you angry?" whats bothering you? or tell him, draw mommy a picture about how you feel. my daughter expresses her self with art. it might work for you. or even try something he likes. its wroth a try. but believe me if you dont address this now, it only gets worse. i later found out my daughter was adhd, and rage, emotional issues, and very hard of hearing. so with getting the hearing problem fix by hearing aids, we were able to began and work on other problems. good luck and i hope works out for you!
