Breana has started to hit again. I keep telling her no but all she does is laugh and do it again. I smack her hand but to me that is hitting also.

Any advice on getting her to stop this??

I'm constantly just redirecting Sophia when she gets "hitty" as we call it

I just give her a book or a baby doll and usually that helps.

I'm a time out, mama... because she doesn't get it often, it really works here because she hates it. Alexis doesn't hit at her age now, but we through a 4 week or so period when she was younger when she did. I like re-directing, also.. I still firmly told her she wasn't allowed to hit, but them distracted her with something else. It stopped the hitting for us!

Alissa is hitting again because her cousin was hitting her on Thanksgiving Alissa hit other kids when she was one and she stopped. Its probably shes frustrated she can't communicate something.

When my boys did/do this, I usually give them a firm "NO HITTING!" and take their hand and gently run it over the object they were hitting, telling them "Be nice, be gentle". It seems to work.

If Sarah-Jane hits we just put her mind on to something else. It works everytime.

Ok I will have to try the firm NO and then the gentle touch. I don't want to do time out just yet.

Caden hits sometimes when he's mad. I just tell him No in a firm tone, show him how to be nice and then we move on to something else to kinda get his mind off of it
