My 18 month has just started hitting my DH and me. This is completely new and just wondering the best way to deal with it. So far we have been saying No and I have been moving away from her - my DH doesn't agree with the moving out the way so we are not being consistent which I don't think is particularly helpful.
I don't know it it is worth mentioning that previously she has been scratched and pushed by the other kids in nursery - quite consistently as she is very docile there and just accepts it from other kids.
I'd say you're doing the right thing. Dd went through this stage and it just stopped after a while. A firm 'NO' and maybe putting her on the floor if she's on your knee/sofa so she realises she misses out by hurting you. What is Dh's argument for not moving away from her?
You'll probably find as she gets a bit older she'll start sticking up for herself with other children then you'll be worried about her pushing them about!
