I have a headstrong, stubborn 16 month old little girl. She hits and we do not know what to do about it. We grab her hands when she does it and tell her not to do it and that it hurts and makes us sad in a stern voice. All she does is laugh at us and goes right back to it. We have tried to ignore it and she keeps doing it. We have tried the redirecting and she still hits. We tell her and show her to use gentle hands and she will do it for a few seconds and then start hitting again. She does not hit all the time, she just gets in those moods sometimes and hits a lot during those times. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
