I meant to add this to my last post. My 23 month old strong willed girl has a problem with hitting me and her older teenage sibling. I dont know where she could have learned hitting because we dont hit at home. She hits us when she is frustrated, angry, when goes to time out, or when she is throwing a tantrum. I have been slapped very hard in the face when trying to pick her up - and almost to the point of tears.
I do not spank and will not spank her. She is too young. I have told her how much it hurts mommy and gives me boo boos when she hits me.l I have put her on time outs, and also have put her in her crib. I dont know what else to do. Please help.
