My son is 13 months old, and he has currently been hitting like crazy. Not only me, but other children, the computer, and the television. I have put him in time out, but it doesn't seem to be working. I don't have a "great" place to put him in time out, so I have been using the corner of our living room, and I just walk away. It has gotten so bad that he has given me a black eye. He has hit me square in the face, hit my glasses and jammed them into my face, which has given me a black eye. I tell him no every time, he understands I'm saying no(because he shakes his head no before he does it), but he doesn't understand what no means. How do you effectively discipline your baby with hitting? He wants to hit EVERYTHING, and I am doing my best to divert him from the TV, or the computer, but when he is hitting people I don't know what to do? Any help, support is much appreciated. I am at my whits end!!!
