Toddler hitting

My daughter is in day care and has recently come home with the idea of smacking and pinching. I have tried timeout, redirecting her attention to something else , letting her know that it is not OK and to be nice. But nothing seems to work she continues to smack and pinch.

How do you react when she smacks and pinches? If she does this to you, say "OW, you hurt mommy", and act like you're crying. See if that makes her realize it's not good to do that. If she still does it, then you need to find a different punishment that will work for her. Does she also do it in the daycare? If so, how does the teacher react? If the teacher isn't making the kids stop this behavior, maybe you need to talk to them or find a new daycare.
