My daughter has begun to show frustration when i take something away from her or steer her away from danger, by hitting me or whatever family member is with her at that moment. She hits with aggression, not playfully, and I can see in her eyes that she also is testing the reaction. She's always been a very happy girl, and so easy going - and we have a calm household and obviously don't exhibit any hitting. Any ideas on constructive ways to teach her that's wrong without yelling and/or constantly saying "no!"??
