I've been taking my DS (age 2) to a music class for a few months now and he absolutely loves it.
However... His behaviour is awful! He screams and tantrums over the slightest thing but more recently has started being violent towards the other children (some of whom are a lot smaller than him).
He'll push or hit anyone that comes too close to him and the toy that he's decided is 'his' for the day. He also pushes others out of the way so he can go first.
I always try to deal with it right away but he just doesn't seem to get it. Usually I take him aside, speak to him and get him to apologise. If he's bad enough, I take him out for a few minutes to calm down.
Is there anything else I could do to help his behaviour? I am absolutely mortified every week and feel like everyone must think of him as 'that kid', which is awful because he can be the most sweet, adorable little boy.
His childminder says there's no issues while he's with her.
He gets the concept of "apologising" and actually apologies at 2YRs old? that is advanced!
Apologise? I think you need to wait a fair bit for that one.
But don't worry he's normal, if it's too much just take him to park instead of music class as it doesn't seem to be working out if it stresses you.
Of course it took until my second child was 2 for me to realise this but maybe there's still hope for you

Well he says sorry anyway... Unlikely that he understands why he's saying it though!
Thanks for your replies! Turns out I was a bit hasty saying there were no issues with the childminder... He hit someone on Friday when he was with her
