if she dos you react trend to cry then she realises it hurts and stops it if she hits others and they cry tell her the truth they crying because you hurt them say sorry as they upset and make her say sorry she soon realise what she done

It probably is just a stage but still she needs to know it's not nice to go round hitting people. You could try explaining it to her she will understand and also get down to her level and say firmly it's not nice and discipline her. After a while she should stop.

my two year old nathan when he was too... used to smack me and other children now he will be 4 and still pretty aggressive ....it's a lil phase just let him/her know it's wrong and he will eventually relize that they don't really know emotions about other kids till they go to jr kindergarten they learn all that there but it's our job to start them young.... and letting them know it's wromng and that it hurts... a ouwy.... lol don't worry about it will work out it's self...ojk hun..

I redirect her behavior. She went through a hitting because excited stage, I said your excited you clap not hit and I showed her how to clap. Then she went through a stage hitting when mad I said no hitting, if your mad yell ugh and I yell ugh (not loud) . they just need help learning to express feelings. Oh yeah she went through a phase of hitting to play (because she pats the dogs on the head but misses and slaps people in the face) so I said to play you share toys and taught her to bring me toys. Just pick one reason for hitting at a time and redirect the behavior until they are good at it and move on if there is a next one.
