I just started reading the book "How to talk to kids will listen and how to listen so kids will talk" (and read the first 3 chapters) and starting trying to use my new skills, and WOW my day was so much less stressful!
Have you read this book?

I really like "toys are not for throwing", "people aren't for hitting" (explaining the problem) skill, because as a two year old it's hard to know that so many things he doesn't realize how things are suppose to work or why, and we don't realize that as adults.
Of course at bed time we were talking and I forget exactly how it came up, but hitting was brought up I think because he remembered a time he hit Micah today, and I said something about people aren't for hitting, and he translated it into Tommy getting a spanking, and I told him again people aren't for hitting.
