How do you stop a child from hitting?

My little girl has a problem with hitting. Not hard but she thinks its a game. We never had to spank her so I dont see where she is getting it from. We use time out chairs and ignoring it but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

  • well it depends on her age and you didnt state how old she was. with my 19month old a stern no hitting and a time out for 1 min seems to get the point across atleast for the rest of the day.
