How can I make her stop?

My 18 month old daughter finds it so funny to hit me. I try and stop her by holding her hanhds and telling her no in a firm voice but all she does is laugh. Any suggestions on how to make her stop?

  • Time outs. She is old enough to understand that if she does something that is not allowed, she must in a certain spot until allowed to get up. By restricting her independance, she will not like it and will not want to do the 'bad' thing again.

  • Same issue with my 16 month old and the Dr. told me to ignore it. The Dr. explained he wants attention neg or pos. So if she gets none she will stop. Totally worked with my son. GL
