The last couple of weeks my 17 month old boy has been hitting me, toys and other children when he gets in a temper. I think its frustration from not being able to communicate very well yet but i don't know how to stop him doing it.

Is anyone going through the same thing or can anyone offer advise with how to approach this problem?

omg my daughter does the same thing! she hits her older brother, me, my mother in law, my husband......throws toys....i kinda don't wanna hit her back, because I'm telling her "don't hit", but I'm hitting lol! but i don't know what else to do! my son never went through this...they are the COMPLETE opposite! Goof luck!

my boy started the same thing. so i did the same as i did when he was pulling my hair, pull it back or in this case hit back, not to much that it hurts him but enough that to get a shock and then say it hurts doesn't it. i had to do it with my boy for about 3-4 day and it was my last resort but it worked. the communicating thing, teach him to point to what he wants. i just started that and it seems to be helping with his temper.
