Hi, I have a 2.5 year old son who pushes all boundaries. Eg, he misbehaves constantly when we are out of the house, especially at the shops where he will just run off and do his own thing and refuses to hold my hand. If I ask him to behave or else we go home, he doesn't seem to care because he hates the shops anyway. At home he is better behaved as we have time-out which works really well. He doesn't attend daycare or Kindy yet - (we are on a waiting list for daycare) but at playgroup on occassion he hits and doesn't do what he is told for example, when asked to sit down. Am I expecting too much of him or does he need tighter boundaries? How do is discipline him when we are out of the house?
