Hi I need some advice, my DS has started punching and shouting at me, I am finding it hard to deal with. My partner has said that we need to give him warnings then place him in time out, I am leaning towards, he should know this is wrong and go straight on time out, as this has been going on for a few months. It has started happening while out at the shops now were we don’t have a time out chair (can’t carry it around with me mores the pity), So could use some advice on how to handle him while out and about.

My son is 4 and has recently started behaving in the same way as you describe. The naughty step doesn't have much effect on him, so I have been taking his Nintendo DS away whenever he does it. He soon shows remorse but I don't give it back until the next day.
