I know its just a cry for attention since i've had my dd, but its really getting outta hand. He's ran out the door 3 times today once while i was using the bathroom I literally had to stop mid shit pull up my pants and run out the door after him. He tries shaking his little sister while shes in her car seat. hes been pulling my hair,hitting and biting, screaming at us. Breaking stuff and throwing our cat down the stairs. I do spank but after he's been warned i've done time outs he just gets out when his time is up and does it again. I've takin toys away there is a garbage bag of toys that i've takin away. I'm out of options!! PLEASE HELP!

Well everyone on here will tell you that since it is a cry for attention not to spank him it'll make it worse. Make time for just him and you. Maybe when DD is napping do something special with him.

we do have set times throughout the day that i sit down and color with him or play but im gonna have to make more time. It seems like hes not getting any less attention then before because his sister is still a newborn and sleeps most the time. i'm starting to think he hates me

He doesn't hate you. Next time he hits you, grab his fists/wrists/hands and tell him that it's not okay to hit or bite, because it causes boo-boos and makes people sad. My mom did that with me and I stopped. But since he's doing it for attention, I'm not sure, never had this problem before.

I don't think he hates you he just doesn't like that he's no longer the baby the only child. He's old enough to understand tho. My nephew was 3 when his brother came and started acting like that. My sister took everything away and he got to sit in his room while he was having one of his issues. It was also explained to him that he couldn't act like that and it wasn't okay. If he still didn't listen he got to stand on the wall for 3 minutes with his arms up(he didn't like that one bit) finally he realized that he couldn't do that anymore.

If he keeps acting up add time to him being on the wall and make sure you tell him why he's in trouble and what he did. When they get in trouble I pull them off the wall after about 2 minutes and ask them what they did to get in trouble. If they can't tell me they go back on. That gets them to verbalize what they did and know that it's not okay

Some people are blessed with the perfect child until their sibling comes along and others are blessed with a good child that stays good after sibling. It'll get better
