Thank you for this topic! My son has bitten/hit me for probably close to 6 months now. (He'll be two in a few weeks.) I appreciate some variations of things I've been attempting to try, as well as alternatives to punishing him because he's angry.

Perfect timing, once again. (Do you two have a hidden camera in my house?) Oliver has been hitting me for a few weeks and in general, laughs at my feeble attempts at stern responses. You gave me a recipe I can follow. Thank you!

I like your post. I am in a very similar situation with my 2year old. At first I would react with making him fearful and I knew it wasn't working. Now I take him up for a five minute timeout, very calmly and I explain why we don't hit. When we talk about being gentle and lovey instead of hitting I give him a hip, hip hooray and thank him for a no hitting day. He gets it and I'm proud to say his hitting has stopped for a few days.

Hey All,
First timer here and with Child. My Son is 21 mo. He hits in anger in response to discipline discipline. His non parental relatives and aquaintences don't expect it.

I am here because I get pissed and get in his face. This is not the way. I had held him in the past untill he exausted himself in my arms (cradled) screaming and tensing up( I call it Hulking out). I see this is close to your idea of holding the wrist..do ya think this is OK to do?
Thanks

Thank you for your post.. I really needed to know it's ok to be angry when my 15 month slapps me! I think I've be responding to her appropriately, however I have actually had to just walk away from her after she slapped hit me out of anger.I had to let her cry for a few minutes until my blood stopped boiling. I hope this stage passes soon, I miss my sweet baby.

My concern about this technique is that it calls for a physical (restraining) process in return...which seems to replace one thing for another. It's hard to say...I wonder if this process would more likely escalate a situation and/or create a different set of similar behaviors?

@ Trista

I can't think of any effective way to stop this behavior without some kind of physical response (restraint, physical removal from the room). Children who hit will usually just laugh at you and continue to hit if you just scold them.
