I am a first-time mom and I am struggling with my toddler's aggression towards other children. My son is 2 years old and he often hits, pushes and bites other children during playtime. I am really concerned as this behavior could harm other children and I don't want my son to be known as the bully.
I have tried to talk to him about how he should behave with other children and the importance of being kind, but it seems like he doesn't understand what I am saying. I have also tried timeouts and taking away toys as a consequence, but it doesn't seem to be helping.
I am at a loss and I need some guidance on how I can handle this behavior. Has anyone gone through a similar situation with their toddler? What worked for you? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
