Has your one year old started hitting?

Is anyone else's one year olds hitting when they get mad or told NO? I was just curious what everyone else is doing to curve this behavior!

Yes, and when she's especially tired and frustrated she'll grab your face and hurt you that way.

Understand there is always a reason for it, 9 times out of 10 it's tiredness and frustration. They don't have the words to communicate their emotions nor the maturity to process their frustrations and emotions.

I tell my daughter, No firmly and say that hurts Mummy (usually she'll frown at me then laugh) and say if you do it again Mummy will put you down, and that's exactly what I do if she does it again.

Rule Number 1, do not threaten if you aren't going to follow through!
