My DD is about to turn one less than 2 weeks.....she already pulls little tantrums hits her hands kicks her feet and the worse of it all bite her hands.....Now should I like spank her ( I mean when I say "spank" ...like tap her butt 1 or 2 times or no?) She gets into everything tears books wants to chew on this and that should I tap her hands or no? I am SO worried that someone will think I am trying to beat her to death or something but DH is deployed and he knows the things DD does ....he wants me to start making her behave....idk if I should or not! This is our first baby and I agree with DH but I do not want to do something to early and get her severely afraid of me....HELPAnswer Question

lightly brush her hand with yours and tell her NO !!! you don't have to spank her just be consistent with saying and enforcing the no. Soon she will understand the meaning. Of course in about three months she will be saying it back to you as often as she can. Discipline means teaching not punishment.
