My daughter will look for something to throw when she is mad. She also will slap or pinch my husband and i when she is mad. I don't know what to do for discipline. Im not sure she is old enough to understand yet, but i want her to know that there are consequences to her actions and i most DEFINITELY don't want her thinking its okay to disrespect us by hitting and pinching. I just don't know how to go about it quite yet cuz she is still little. My MIL saw her smack me and asked if i ever spank her. I was spanked when i was little but im not sure i want to move right to that as a way of disciplining. I want to find another method that works for my daughter cuz i don't think spanking is necessary.
How do i discipline a child who is still a "baby"?
In advance, thanks to those who take the time to help me with this!

The shock of me saying "No!" or "ah,ah,ah!" LOUDLY was enough to stop my Son in his tracks. The more I used loud verbal reinforcement, the less my Son did things that he shouldn't. I do NOT spank my children.
