3 year old : Destructo Mode


We have 3 1/2 and 15 month old boys. Soon after the baby was born the older son started going into what we dubbed Destructo Mode when around his brother: he runs with crazy fast feet, makes a constant "uh uh uh" noise and commits rapid fire bad behavior, so fast that you haven't finished correcting one behavior before he's on to the next. Its obviously an attention getting scheme since it only happens when the baby is around and he is otherwise bright and articulate. The only thing that stops it is separating him and having one parent supervise each kid but we worry that this is rewarding the behavior.
