  • Oh, 2 is the age! Sorry, Mommy. Talk to the daycare provider, so that you both can follow the same protocol for addressing it.

  • I too am looking for answers to this question. We don't do childcare, but if my 2 year old dd sees another child, she sometimes feel the need to hit. It is very annoying and embarrasing.

  • My 2 yr old is doing the same thing . . . I give him a time out (2 minutes) and make him apologize and then show me what "gentle" looks like.

    It has been lessening in frequency, but it is crazy-making!
