Title: hitting and lying
Post by: kelly s on August 31, 2010, 08:29:51 pm
Owen is hitting me.  Any suggestions for dealing with it?

And he lies too.  Like, I ask him what he said and he says, "I didn't say anything".  Is this abnormal?

Is he testing the boundaries?

I used a short simple phrase whenever Bry hit.

Such as:
"Hands are for helping not for hurting"
"I don't like that, stop"
"No Hitting"
"Hitting Hurts, we don't hurt"


Lying. I do not know.  :( Sorry

At this stage, lying is just a fantasy thing.  I find that if I can make it playful with Sofi, she will tell me the truth.  I can say, "Did you wish you hadn't said anything, so you told me you didn't?" and she will respond most of the time.

Hitting, in YAYCFT I think, she talks about warming the hands if they hit.  That in a classroom, they will wrap a silk around the hand, or hold it in your hands to warm it.  I know that it is summer time, so that might not work, but the intention might.  Approaching with love and just holding the hands.

Good luck!
