I do what I can to teach him hitting is a big no no. I put him in time out, but he doesn't care afterword. he throws a fit while sitting in his time out crib (seperate from his bed time crib) but as soon as I take him out within 15 min. he'll hit me again. I brought him to WIC terrified he'd hit another child, so I told him repeaditly "Nice". Instead of hitting, he hugged a little girl and was very gentle, which only leads me to belive that what i'm doing is somehow getting though, but he is still soo agressive with me at home. I NEED this to stop. I know disciplining hitting with hitting is never the answer it only confuses the child, but time-out's aren't working for me either. Any other suggestions?

You are doing the right thing by saying "nice." Keep up with that. Consistently. Keep saying it over and over. And give him a lot of praise. He will get the hang of it.
