I didn't teach him that

We have been working with Cooper on not hitting. Sometimes he hits, and sometimes he just gets overly enthusiastic in expressing himself. When he is hitting, we say, "Only happy hands!" When he gets carried away I remind him that he needs to do gentle touches. We were playing today, and he started poking me in the face. I reminded him, "Only gentle touches." So he started holding his finger half an inch from my face and laughing. He doesn't actually say, "I'm not touching you," but I can hear him thinking it.

Where do they learn these things?

Ha! I think kids, particularly little boys, are not the angels they seem. I had two little brothers, and they had ornery streaks in them a mile wide before us older sisters got our hands on them. :) I'm not touching you is one of my all time favorites!
