: : My 10 month old DS is getting very physical. He hits everyone, especially me. He hits when he is happy or mad. He also hits my daughter really badly. I meet up regularly with a couple of girlfriends of mine who have babies/toddlers. My DS is the youngest of the lot and he hits the other babies. He is now the little terror of the group. If I say NO, he hits even more. I just try to ignore him. Any advice on how to get him to stop?
: No sorry, my dd does the same thing. She gets upset and hits. I think they will grow out of it. I get mad at her, but dont hit her, that would confuse her.
My dd and ds so the same thing it makes me so upset, they will grow out of it i hope. Ingoreing him will work cause if you don't give in on what he wants or don't care then he will back off the hitting. just don't ingore him when he hits other ppl you ahve to tell him its not nice to hit ppl, you don't have to spank him just tell him in a claim voice or ound voice that he can't do that.
