My three year old has started hitting us, like if she's trying to stick something in the wall socket and we pop her hand and tell her no that it will hurt her she hits us back. Any suggestions on how to teach her that she cannot hit???

Stop hitting HER.



Seriously, you hit her for doing something, and you are surprised she is hitting you back? You are showing her how to do it, AND showing her it is ok.



Instead of "popping" her, get some socket safety covers, and remove her from the situation. Or move furniture in front of the sockets so she can't get to them.

Well, do you hit her for punishment of her hitting you? See? Doesn't make much sense. Find another way to show her what she is doing is wrong. I agree with Jodi.
