Re: how do/did you discipline 18 mo. for hitting?

I agree with a LOT of what tollers29 said!

Redirect is SO useful! DD is 18 months old and will now hit when she doesn't get her way! So, I usually will hold her hand and say "OUCH, that hurt mommy, I dont like it when you hit mommy!" I also do not allow any one to hit in our home, so when we have play dates (because the moms and I are so close) I will usually do simular reactions with her friends when they hit! So that she understands that hitting is not okay no matter WHO is doing it!
