Re: I need help - my daycare child is hitting!

http://partners-in-parenting.typepad...our_toddl.html

This works well with my kids. The best way to handle it would be to sit down and discuss this approach with his mom and agree to both implement it so he's getting it at home and at your house. Hitting is unacceptable, period. I would also discuss with mom that you will give him two weeks (or whatever seems fair to you) to get past this behavior as a habit, and after that you will not keep him anymore. You will not continue to subject your children and yourself to such abuse, nor will you continue to teach this child that hitting is an acceptable way of dealing with his emotions.

Well, at least that's what I would do/say.
