How to stop DD hitting

(2 Posts)

My DD is 21 months and over the last week she has started hitting me and DH. At beginning of week she was told NO you must not hit mummy and this seemed to be enough. Today she has repeatedly hit me, my mum and my dad. Again she was told NO but I moved her to the other end of room and sat her down. She seemed to think this was a game and continued. What do I do? Do I tell her No and ignore her for 1 minute or so, or do I continue to move her? I want to nip this in the bud asap.
All ideas please?

I start with a low voiced, serious warning eye to eye with him, then if he hits again I put my 24 month old out of the room for a couple of minutes. He gets upset then when he comes back in I say, 'You can come in but you must not hit. Say sorry' and he does.

He doesn't do it often and sometimes the warning is enough.

I think you're quite right to want to nip this in the bud btw.

Good luck.
