  • Say "NO not funny. Hitting hurts" in a very firm tone (and have a stern "I mean business" look on your face) move his hands away from your face and put him right back down and say "I will pick you up when you can be nice". Then wait a few minutes before you pick him back up. Be firm and be consistent- do it EVERY time he hits and he will get the message.

  • Try not to react too much. Just hold his hand and say "Don't hit!". If you react strongly or smack his hand then he is just going to turn it into a game.
