It's difficult to provide an answer without specific examples of behavior, but in general, for a young child, it's best to distract or substitute the negative behavior with one that is acceptable. For example, if a your child writes on the walls it's best to say, "The walls are not for writing, but here is a piece of paper and you can write on this." If your daughter hits say firmly while holding her hands, "Hitting hurts." Take her over to a stuffed pillow and say, "You can't hit your sister / the cat but you can hit this." If you do this consistently, over a period of time, you will see progress. The approach for an older child would be different.
