  • Maybe you could make playdates with some of the daycare kids. I would talk with your daughter about the hitting issue as well.

  • hitting other kids
    and playing with other kids
    two different issues

    a child between 1-2 does not play WITH other kids
    will play along side other kids
    and no, should not hit them

    address hitting issue
    and allow child to play along side
    play with will come in time
    if she can play along side without hitting- great thing

    could this be a share issue?
    children this age do not share or take turns well, could work on basics of this concept

  • punish for hitting. address the issue at home. dont hit them for hitting it only results in more hitting and more aggression from the kid. time outs work way better.
