It seems my 4 1/2 yr old has recently started teasing and hitting his friends at nursery school. The teachers & I have told him before about this. I even took away his TV privelages, yet he still does it. Is this a phase he is going through? How can I get him to stop this kind of behavior?
Thanks for your Reply!

Some children are more strong willed than others.... I would suggest that you learn some parenting techniques for dealing with a persistent child. Here is a link to a really good program/books. http://www.parentmagic.com/
Maybe he's bored at school and/or doesn't want to be there? Another idea, may be to limit how long he's at school.
I would enlist in the teachers help also....hopefully she has a lot of experience with young children and is willing to work with you.
