  • Say, "No, do not slap my face" and abruptly but not hurtfully, push her hand away from your face. Do it EVERY time she slaps you until she gets the message.

  • I agree with "manna1qd". Just be consistent. She'll start to get it!
    Whatever you do don't hit her back. Not saying that you do/would. But that would only be contradicting what your telling her. I've just seen a lot of mom's do that. When their kid hits, they then spank or swat them od the hand. I think that just confuses the kid!
