With my ONE year old. He is being so mean!! I know it doesnt seem possible. But he will NOT stop.hitting me or.biting me and pulling.my hair. he thinks its funny. If i tell him to stay away from something he does it anyways. Hes perfect around everyone else but me. Mind you,  a single mom ive been doing it on my own and.im 25 weeks and five days pregnant. I'm not like other 18 year old.moms that think its necessary to put their.friends and stupidity above their children. I'm with him 24/7 when im not working.or at college and i do everything for him. Is this normal for young toddlers? It just doesnt seem okay because he has.never acted like this hes even more.clingy. i just want to cry.

My son's 15 months old. So just a little over a year old too. He's very stubborn & strong willed. He will try to bite and hit usually when he get's tired. & for some reason he only does it to me and is fine around others. He's in daycare and the teachers say he's too young to even know what he's doing wrong but as long as I keep correcting him he will learn not to do it. His doctor told me her daughter did the same thing and she would tell her to gently touch her and not hit (that way her daughter knows she can touch her, just not hit). I've heard of some parents biting back and that works but I know that's super controversial. Good luck momma. Sounds like your doing what you can!

This is totally normal behavior. All you can do is keep saying no and using redirection.

Agreed. I guess it really is all you can do. Its just so stressful. I wont tap his hands or bite him back because i dont want to hurt him or hurt his feelings because i really am all hes got. I love him to bits i just needed to make sure this is typical because i want to help him in every way i can. it just drives me crazy half the time when he acts outs lol.

Yep, this exactly. That phase was probably the most frustrating phase I went through with my two LO's. I can't even count the times I cried from pure frustration.
