Hitting toddler

Dd 3 is hitting other children on a playground at daycare and now they say that she is scary and dont want to play with her. She doesnt behave like that at home or on a playground with me. How to address this issue? No bashing please. 

I usually give her timeouts and explain how bad it is. Recently it only causes her crying and refusing to talk.

She's probably pissed that she is there. I don't want that to sound "bashing"......maybe make sure that you spend extra time with her outside of daycare. During this time explain that hitting is bad.

As a daycare provider I have to say that this is up to the center/daycare that your DD goes to. They should be addressing and preventing the hitting.

Your DD is not a toddler. She is to old to be hitting. The daycare needs to watch her and see what is triggering this behaviour. You need to be asking a lot of questions to whoever is in charge and who is supposed to be watching the children.

What was happening at the time. Who was watching her. Did she do it out of anger. Its it the same situation every time she hits. How its handled at daycare. What the staff is doing to prevent it
