Re: 2.5 year old and "hate it/you"

Hi, Have you tried ignoring it. When he realises he doesn't get a reaction he may stop doing it. That worked with my son when he picked up the word **** It! He said it over and over cos he knew it upsset me. As soon as I just ignored him he soon got bored.

Re: 2.5 year old and "hate it/you"

My children told me very few times that they hated me. My response was a very sad face, and to tell them I'm sorry they felt that way, because I LOVED them very, very much. I could and would never hate them. It seemed to do it.
