Please, please. Someone tell me my daughter is not the only 2 year old that hits.
And please, please someone tell me how the fuck to stop it. Because I am *thisclose* to putting her out on the doorstep with a sign: "Free to a good home. I may look cute, but I have a left hook like you wouldn't believe. God Speed."
Seriously, what is going on with my child? The hitting seems to be mainly for my benefit. Scratch that, ENTIRELY for my benefit. Meaning, she really only hits me. But there is no mistaking her intent. It isn't an accident. It isn't half-assed. It is thought out, she actually makes eye contact the entire time, she has some ridiculously good aim, and let me tell you, that two year old has some big fucking balls.
I never thought I'd have a child with a major discipline problem. One bordering on being a complete asshole. I knew how to handle it. Discipline is easy. Be consistent. Discipline. Be consistent. Make rules. Enforce them. Be consistent. Have I mentioned being consistent?
Well, that's all shot to shit. Because we've done that. And then some. And she's still hitting.
