Is this normal two year old behavior?
My two year old son has been showing such a high level of hyperactivity that even his preschool teacher has asked me, "Is he this busy at home too?" He must be going, going, going at all times unless he is eating or sleeping. He will actually have a few points in a day where he seems to be engaged in an activity but not for long. I know he is two and two years show many signs of misbehavior as they learn. My son ignores almost anyone who tells him no. It is as if he must act as he desires and shows no regard for any type of consequence. He will of course throw a tantrum when he is being corrected but that almost never stops him from going right back and doing it again. If he becomes upset, angry, frustrated etc he will hit, he will even hit his toys. Sometimes he will just walk up to me and hit me for no reason. He is very sweet but throws quite a bit of tantrums. He can figure his way around any obstacle we put up. He pulls the outlet covers right out of the socket, he can remove the child safety cap off a pill bottle in a couple seconds, and when we arranged our living room so that the couched blocked off an area he wasn't allowed, he just climbed on the back of the couch and jumped off. It seems as if he doesn't recognize fear even after getting hurt. I wish I could figure out if this is all normal or if I should be looking for some expert advice. He really is a good, sweet, loving child, he just seems as though he is really high strung and his will to have his way is stronger than even a concern that he might get hurt. Help, please!
