its normal they go through stages, the only thing is never laugh back and never hit back their too young to understand the difference just act like he really hurts you eventually he will feel bad..

Most toddlers go through the hitting phase, he's frustrated and doesn't know what to do about it. Every time he hits get down to his level, hold his arms and firmly say 'No, you do not hit.' If he then does it again you could either try the naughty corner or just say it again. It might take time but he will stop.
