My son rylee hits EVERYBODY! I have no idea how to make him stop. AS much as I say "NO" in a very stern voice he just keeps hitting. I would love anybody's opinion on this. PLease!

I think to you need to ignore him if this doesnt work set an area where it is "time out" teach him that if he continues to hit he has to sit there for 2 minutes.. if he keeps getting up put him back there until he learns if i hit i have to sit here all alone and hopefully he will stop hope this helps

My niece used to hit everybody quite alot aswell and all we did was ignore her when she did it and only when she had said sorry or given us a cuddle or kiss did we start speaking to her again. Yes, I know cruel people lol but it worked wonders for her and now she doesn't hit anyone.

My nephew also used to hit everybody and my sister instead of ignoring him would shout and he thought it was a game in the end, he still hits people every so often but not as much as his mum has started the ignore senario.

I think every child starts to hit just to get attention as my 15 month old has just started doing this. Ignore it and it will go away, hopefully :)

my little girl is 1 and she does that too. we asked her dr. about it and she said the best way to get them to stop is to ingore them when they do something wrong when they are that age. is helped with her so hopeful it might work for yo too.
