my 18month daughter likes to push the chairs to the computer desk and climb right up onto the computer box, she also climbs into the wee cubby hole that is at least 1 meter off the ground, and she hits me and throws her dolls at me when i tell her no! i have tried time-outs and talking calmly but none of that seems to work does anyone have any ideas on what i should do?

Try barracading this area off until your daughter has grasped the word no more clearly. I had a giant play pen that I used to barracade my lounge from my diner and I also used it as a time out area. At 18 months it is natural to want to explore and climb. See if you can find an indoor soft play area for her to climb in safely until this phase has passed or she listens to you.
