My daughter is now for and since she was 2 it's been hell!! She was 2 and a half and we were reading a story together, but I did the awful thing of turning the page myself and recieved a huge beating from her for it. I went to work the next day with scratches all down my face (some of which I still have scars from) I had a split lip and a black eye!! I never smacked my daughter as a child because HV told me not to, all I can do Is whisper (not shout) and put her on the naughty step none of which work :( 2 years on and she's 4 last weekend she was hitting me with a book so I told her not to do it or I would take the book away which did happens and her response was to get my cup of tea off the side and throw it on my legs with a big smile!! Would this be a good time to maybe lightly smack on the hand? Or does anyone have any advise for me? Desperate for some help!!
