View Full Version : hitting

02-06-2010, 09:55 PM
Just wondered if anyone had any advice please?!
My son is 15 months and has started hitting other children- sometimes with toys but usually just hands. He doesn't do it in a violent manner or through frustration. Theres never a reason for it eg because someone has taken a toy from him. He does it in a playful way and with a smile on his face- but obviously that doesn't make it ok!
So far i have been saying a very firm 'no' and moving his hand away. If he carries on i turn him around or move him away.
Is there anything else i can do?
He seems to have learned it from my mindee, who hits out when she is frustrated/ not getting her own way etc.
