Ever since my daughter has been mobile she has been hitting, kicking, biting us, and at meal time she throws some of her food at me while she is eating. She will get a big huge grin on her face that is followed by her hurting us. I have tried time outs (she screams no no no no, while I try to tell her we don't hit, that's not nice), taking away her toys if she hits me with it (she screams and points at the toy or what the toy is in for hours, she is stubborn),and my husband tried a small spanking (she just laughed at him and started hitting more like it was a game to her). She gets a lot of attention, we go for "walks" in the morning, I let her wander around and explore the neighborhood with me, story time, dance time, play hide and seek (we just duck around furniture), and she has a couple play dates a week. I just don't know what else I can do, it's becoming frustrating and I feel like I am failing.
