My son is 19 1/2 months old, he rarely has tried to hit us, but when he has tried to do it, we have teach him that he has to be nice and give hugs, so every time he has ever even try to hit us again we said "No we dont hit" and he comes to us and give us hugs........BUT this happened tmany times alrealdy to my son...... he had been hit by other toddlers........Yesterday, a kid maybe a little bit older than mine hit him really bad with a big plastic toy on his face while they were playing. We take mommy and me classes and I was trying to register for next semester and talking to the recepcionist when I heard my son crying and the mom of this kid consoling him........I went there to get my son and this kid hit him again on his face right in front of his mom..................ohhhhhhhhh I was sooo mad...still mad and frustrated because we try to teach my son that hitting, bitting, pushing or taking toys from others is a bad thing!!! ..........I just feel like a need to teach him how to defent himself from now on.........after all that, this mom came to us telling the kid to say sorry to my son. I was so mad I wanted to tell her that instead of teaching to say sorry she sholud be focus on teaching in NOT TO HIT OTHERS!!!
