My son hits as hard as he can when he's upset, he'll strike your face/arm/stomach..anywhere and scream "I'm mad!" Then he takes off with his tantrum. I will put him in timeout and let him know, hitting hurts and that's not nice. It only takes a few minutes when he calms down and apologizes but this happens Every day. Something upsets him all the time. I'm conflicted because all the articles say not to hit or spank but my friends and dad tell me I need to spank him. That this is becoming a bad habit, how should I discipline him?
