chicsahm:I say "No hitting" in a firm voice and quickly take him in our time out area and walk away out of site. He is still to young to make him sit there or do a timer... but he usually throws his little fit and comes to find me. When he does I tell him he needs to be nice, we do not hit. He gives me a kiss and it is over. He only hits on occasion now. Sometimes he doesn't cry much but will go off to play with a toy, as long as he is nice and changes his mood I am fine with that. I think the key for it to work for us was for me to walk away and not be around him, if I return and he hits again... I place him back, say no hitting and walk away again. He gets it now.
LalaMama81:We do "gentle hands" instead of no hitting. So if she hits or uses her hands unkindly (too rough, pulling hair, etc) we say, "Gentle touch," and touch our hands gently on her face/cheek. She mimics it back to us and it has actually become her way to say she's sorry as well.
Mine he has to give me a kiss. lately he will hit and then immediately will go in for the kiss. I don't know If he lacks impulse and feels sorry right away, If he wants to kiss to avoid the "time out" or he just think that he should hit and kiss......
I hope he grows out of this one quick

We do this... I wish I could say it is working but he really only started a week ago. I feel like he is still learning how to control his arms and sometimes he hits pretty hard. We are working on gentle touch.
I am also due is November so at least I am grateful that we are dealing with this now!
