It's normal to hit at that age. Just keep on her, taking her hand and reminding her how to touch gently. My 2.5 year old still has trouble with that, but he's getting better with time. I find that if we keep the atmosphere calm and happy and don't watch any tv with conflict, he's much better at not hitting.

I think she's just at that age where she's pushing the buttons and trying to assert her authority. My sons been a terror like it at times. He was today. Just be firm and keep doing what you're doing. She needs to know that you're boss. good luck :)
