Hitting and throwing..
Fun, right? Not!!
My daughter is 16 months and recently she just loves to hit and loves to throw whatever she can get her hands on.
She's been throwing her dinner on the floor when she's done for a while now, but now she'll just throw her fork across the table. Her toys, sippy.
And the hitting! If one of her cousins is in her way or is doing something she doesn't like she will hit them. And I know alot of kids go through this, but, I want to put a stop to this, she starts daycare in September and I don't want her hitting throwing.
We usually give her one warning, and tell her to give "gentle touch" which she knows very well, and if she does it again, we tell her no, and then put her in a 2 minute time out, afterwards we show her a gentle touch again and usually tell her to go give whoever she hit a hug or kiss.
Just wondering what you all do with your kids, anything that really worked for them?
