It's not a good idea to use his crib for a time-out. He will start associating 'bedtime' with 'punishment'. Our pediatrician told me to keep doing what I've been doing (my son is 19 months), and that's using his playpen for time-out (only 2 minutes). It is perfect because we only use it for a toybox now! That way he doesn't have to be afraid of him room/bed. Also, I wouldn't hit his hands, because you are in-fact incouraging the act of hitting. I know it seems to work at times, but later on he will have the excuse "well mommy hits, so it must be okay to hit"....wrong! I know it might be a pain in the butt to keep putting him in time-out, but trust me, it works. Now when my son is doing something he knows he's not supposed to, I'll say "do you want to go into time-out"? He'll say "nooo" and shake his head- 9 outta 10 he'll get the point and stop what he's doing! Hope this helps ;)
