Preschooler Acting Up

I don't have much time to spare these days. And instead of looking up diet pill reviews, I have to Google discipline tips and strategies instead because my firstborn son is acting up.

To his credit, he is still a happy and sweet boy. And much as it pains me when he cries quietly sometimes when he's done something he really knows hurt someone or is wrong, I also like that he's developing a conscience already and that he's growing up.

But he's always had a penchant for hitting, out of glee and frustration. Now, it's becoming more unmanageable. Just today, he punched me in the stomach and hit my cut (again!!!) when I was just asking him what he wanted for breakfast. In retrospect, I think he felt threatened that I wasn't going to let him play that's why he thought to act up.
