oh for the hitting her head on the floor thing. Let her do it! It won't hurt her. Don't even notice that she's doing it and she will stop.

I've worked with children with severe behavier problems for many years, and now I have a 21 month old who thinks she's 2 already! :-) So when my little one is having a devil like possessed episode, I sit her in her room (telling her I'll be on the other side of the door and she can come out went she calms down.) and shut the door. For my daughter the episode doesn't last more than 10 mins in her room. I listen for quiet, when it's been quiet for a about a minute I open the door (squatting in the doorway, so i'm on her level) and say are you ready to come out. If she doesn't come to me, I let her be and say "come on out when your ready" (leaving the door open) and I go and sit on the couch and wait. When she comes out for a big hug, I always reassure her that I love her and thank her for calming down. It works for us and I hope it works for you!!



For the hitting problem...put her hands together in a open hand like prayer, and hold them together so she can't move them apart. Get down on her level and tell her we don't hit, it hurts my feelings (while looking her in the eyes). Hold them together for no more then a minute or 2 and let go. Thank her and tell her that you love your nice little girl, praising her. I do this to my daughter and she doesn't hit me for at least a couple of days.

I hope this makes sense, good luck!

time out! i do not put my kids in time out and walk away i sit with them. Sit her on our lap and make her sit if she is hiting you, you may have to hold her still so she will not hurt you or herself. make her sit tell she is calmed down, this can be a long time in comeing but is will be shorter every time. (most of the time) The key to it working is to do this EVERY time she acts out. hope this helps and good luck. o and tell her why she is having to sit with you and that she must obey mommy when mommy tells her to do something or that she can not have something
