How To Stop Your Toddler From Hitting Without Hitting Back!

If your toddler is hitting you or other people and you just don't know how to stop it – then I have you good tips for you! Many parents hit back and it's not the method I recommend you no matter what – he is only a child, not a criminal! Don't even think about spanking him – it will only add fuel to the fire!

First of all you have to understand that your toddler is hitting you or others not because he wishes to hurt someone, but because that it's probably the only way for him to make social contacts with people! Since he still probably can't talk then the best way for him to get attention is with physical contact!

Most of the times this simple method will work – just gram his little hands and don't him move for 10-20 seconds! Look him in the eyes and tell him that hitting is unacceptable for you! Most parents who use this method still do one mistake – they are not consistent! One time they will do it, another time they will scream at the child, third time they will ignore – you must repeat it time after time until your child learns!

You can also teach him other methods of communication. Tell him that if he wants something he can touch you gently. When he does it give him some sort of prize – ice cream, candy or a strong hug and kiss! That way he'll understand, after few times, what works better for him and use the gentle way to get attention!

One more thing – it's very important not to overreact. Since you do understand the real reason behind the hitting then you don't have to get angry! I hope I helped you, good luck!
