What should I do when my daughter (who is 18 months old) starts hitting and pulling hair? I have tried so many things and she just laughs and continues doing it when I say "NO". I am getting pretty frustrated and do not want her continuing with this, especially since I am expecting another baby this coming November. I am pretty sure she is just testing me because I know she knows what the meaning "NO" means...Help please?!?!

Say no put her down and walk away. Ignore her! If she wants attention or to play she's going to learn very quickly that if she hits it pulls hair she's not going to have anyone to play with.
