Stop letting her hit you....

Firmly take her hand and tell her that it is not ok to hit. Then stick her in time out (I prefer the standing w/ the nose to the wall kind by this age) for 6 minutes.... or you could put her in her room if YOU are getting angry about it. Just be firm and consistent. Good luck!

Sturnly say No we don't hit put her in her room shut the door and walk away, it sounds like it brings up angry memories and feelings so its best to get yourself away from her so you don't lash out with out thinking.
