My daughter has recently gotten a little attitude and when something doesn't go her way or we have to remove her from a situation she will get mad and hit us in the face. She will either use her hands and smack us or if she has a toy in her hand throw it. I really need to nip this in the butt soon, I am pregnant with our second child and don't want this going on any longer. Please leave some helpful advice!

Thank you moms for all of your tips, I do the slap on the hand...she laughs...time outs I don't think she would understand being so young, but I will give it a try.

I would definitely say a firm NO after she hits and if she does it again put her in time out or give her a firm slap on the hand to let her know that the hitting will not be tolerated. Hope things get better soon and congrats on being pregnant again!!

Children don't realize how much it hurts. My daughter is 14 months and started this at about 12 months. I smack her little butt over diaper not hard and she hasn't hit me in 2 weeks. Hope this helps!
