  • Eh, I don't hit my Dd to tell her to stop hitting, seems a bit ironic to me. I just tell her to stop and I keep her from doing it again. She really only hits when she's being bad, so the timeout thing will work when she's older, but I don't think timeout is appropriate for a 15 month old... (unless it's just me that needs a timeout from her :P). I find the best way to get a child to do something is getting on their level and having a conversation with them about it. Explain to her that hitting hurts, and that it's not good behavior and that you expect her to be behaved. If nothing else, it will help her learn to communicate quicker because talking to kids helps with that :)
