Right, here goes.
My daughter is almost 16 months old. I don't expect her to learn all right from wrongs as she is still very young, but she has started smacking. Mostly me and it could be my face or my arms. This is not acceptable. When I tell her "NO," she laughs at me and does it again. I really don't want to go down the route of smacking her as discipline, but I'm not sure how to teach her!!??
I have started to move her away from me and saying "NO" but she just follows me. I have also tried "WE DON'T SMACK MUMMY." She just laughs...
I know she doesn't understand, but surely I need to start teaching her early. Please help. Advice needed!
