  • Have you started time outs? She is not too young. When she hits, she sits for 1 minute per year of age. Keep explainations simple...no hit. not nice...hurt mommy. Let her throw the fit in the time out area but she must stay there until she calms down.

  • i would just leave the room and act like you dont notice it. it might be had at first bc she might hold on to you when she does ti but just keep doing what you were doing.

  • My GD started at 11 months too,her Dr. told us to start putting her in timed-out, she understood very well,Makayla is now 2, she has gotten worse, she now hits,spits, kicks, throws where we have to dunk, we finally called in help,the therapist played with her,Makayla acted like a princess,until the therapist took her toy, she threw a tantrum like we never saw,but I was glad,before this happen, the therapist told us,she didn't see nothing wrong. Starting next week,an occupational therapist and a speech therapist will be coming,also they are checking her hearing. Out of 5 kids, 6 grandkids, Makayla tops, as gorgeous as she is. Ask your pediatric doctor.GOOD LUCK.
