Hi! I just stumbled upon your forum through google, and thought that maybe you all could offer some insight. Here is some background. I have a 2 year old boy (turned 2 at the end of June). I KNOW this is a bit young to worry about things, but...he is VERY impulsive. His big thing is throwing. He throws everything at people and not at people. Blocks, cars, pillows, diapers, clothes, etc. We were in a playgroup and he had been asked to leave because people thought he was becoming overly aggressive and they had issues with him throwing. We do timeouts and if he throws again we leave where ever we are or the thing gets taken away. He seems to know that he is not supposed to throw but does so like he truely cannot help it. He plays well with kids most of the time, but when they are about his size, he has a tendency to push and shove them. He hits when he wants attention or does not like what you are doing. For example, I get hit if I have to use the bathroom. I realize that at this age, most kids struggle with impulsivity, but when is it more than "normal 2 year old boy" behavior? He can be the sweetest kid in the world and will listen if he is calm. I always praise him when he listens and does what he is told. I also found that he does much better playing one on one then with several other kids. His language is great and he is smart (can already read the alphabet, knows all colors and can count to 20) so he is not developmentally behind. I worry because his dad, my husband, had a lot of issues as a child. His parents never treated him and just enrolled him in every sport imaginable to keep him active and out of the house. My husband exhibits many symptoms of ODD and is medicated for depression. I know that some of these issues can be genetic. What would you do?
