What do you do if your two year old won't stop hitting you whe she doesn't get her way?

I usually get down to their level, hold their hands and let them know that we don't hit.
Be calm and look them in the eye. I hold their hands until they calm down and ask them what they would like again. If they can't have it I explain why and distract them onto something else.

Put her in a time out. Put yourself in a time out behind a locked, closed door. Tell her you don't want to be around her if she's going to hit you. Help her find the right words to use instead of hitting. Encourage her to show emotions rather than act them out.
