  • When he does it, just say "Don't hit!'.

  • take ahold of both of his hands, look him in the eye and say " no hitting". they don't hit because they see it, they hit because it gets a reaction. if the reaction is unpleasant to them, they tend not to hit again.

  • i tell him no hit.
    sometimes i laugh. i cant help it, its hilarious.. but i know it wont be funny if hes doing it in school or whatever.

  • They hit because they're unable to verbalize their feelings.
