Tyler (20 mos) has just started hitting when he's frustrated or angry. He also just started daycare, so that maybe where he's picking it up. When he was younger he has gone through this stage but I just had to grab his hand telling him no, and show him gentle touch instead of hitting. But now he's not doing it out of curiosity, he's doing it because he's not getting his way!

What do/did you do at this age for hitting? So far swatting his hand doesn't do anything but break his heart, he cuddles with me, and then he just hits again the next time.

We have been going through this for awhile--Troy picked it up from his cousin who hits all the time. I just take his hand and say "No hitting--that hurts". If he does it again, he gets a T.O. and sits in a chair for 10 sec (or more depending). Generally he stops, but I have tapped his hand or bottom when he won't stop.

I went through a spell of playing referee recently for the younger two girls. I traced the trend to a cousin they had seen hitting, not that that part matters. The good thing was that it was short-lived. A few time outs and Cass didn't think it was so cool anymore.
