Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Be consistent with your discipline. Tell him no and mean it. In the store, do not let him hold anything you do not intend to buy. Doing that is teasing him and isn't fair. If he is grabby or gets bored, bring a toy or let him hold something you will be buying. As far as the hitting goes, when he does it, grab his hand and tell him that hitting isn't nice. Quickly explain that it hurts people. If you're holding him, put him down when he youngest turned one at the beginning of the month and she is a serious drama queen at home. She throws mini tantrums and cries over everything. I do my best to ignore the tantrums, and I know that eventually, they'll stop once she learns that the tantrums don't get her what she wants.
