Hello - I don't post here often but I'm looking for some advice and insight on discipline for our 2.5 y/o. We've had several evaluations with developmental pediatricians and EI and right now are treating a speech delay and developmental delay. We don't have enough markers to really rule him in or out of the Autism Spectrum. He seems to be going through a phase where he is tantruming and acting out and I am looking for ways to handle it. Mostly it occurs at diaper changing time or transition time or sometimes he's just doing something we don't want to reinforce. With his twin sister I can tell her no in a stern voice and she can read that I am angry and that is typically enough to stop the behavior. With DS he tends to laugh and continue the behavior and it almost spurs him to do it more. For example the other evening he was taking books from the bookshelf and throwing them. I told him he could not throw the books but he continued. I removed him from the room and made him sit in a chair in another room for a minute until he settled down. I don't know if he's old enough for time out and he will not sit in one spot unless he is forced to. I am just unsure if he gets the concept of consequences for the action and if I am addressing it in a way that he connects with. I would just love any insight into discipline or really correcting inappropriate behavior at this age with a child who may or may not be able to read the situation and understand, Or maybe he's just fooling me and he totally understands and just acts as if he doesn't. Anyway just looking for experiences and techniques. Thanks!
