My little boy is 26 months and is going through exactly the same thing. I explain that it's not a nice thing to do and that he has to leave the room until he's going to be nice again. I sit him just outside the sitting room door, so he can hear me, and leave him for 2-3 mins. When I let him back in, we start over, but he leaves the room every time he hits out. We've left playgroups and days out over this, but we're finally getting somewhere. I think that whatever method you go for, you must be consistant. Good luck.

All I can say is that you (general) have to be strict and you have to be absolutely consistant.
