Question

Our Son is 12 months old, generally he is a well behaved baby, but when he is cranky he tends to get a bit angry. When this happens he takes his hand and slaps whoever is carrying him in the face. I know he is still very young but how do you discipline a 12 month old to grow out of that? What can I do to stop this from turning into a habit. At what age can one start disciplining a child?

I suggest you go to John's Q&A section where he answers a similar question. Go to the Home Page and on the left side of your screen you'll find "Topics." Click on "Aggression " and then scroll down to "Birth to 18 mos." The heading is "One Year Old Slapping Parents and Screaming."
I also recommend reading John's book Making the Terrible Twos Terrific!" It can be obtained through John's bookstore at www.rosemond.com, amazon.com, bn.com, or at or through your local bookseller. If you don't feel the Q&A I directed you to is adequate please write back.

All the best!
