Sugar Ray Sabrina

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.

I'm sorry I don't have any advice - Mine went through the hitting when we were potty training. She REALLY didn't want to poop. Like ever. She she would tell me that by slapping me across the face. She did stop though. Hope things get better. Sorry sweetie.

I feel for you, that must suck.

But, I just laughed my ass off at her right hook. : /

Long time no commenting I know...but I've been reading right along. You are not alone, our Brynn is a 2 year old hitter. Let me rephrase that....she likes to hit me :) Sounds like you're facing the same with Sabrina...I'm so sorry! It truly sucks. I get so frustrated!

I haven't found anything that works great yet other than it seems to go in spells. One week she'll barely do it and the next she is at it again. Maybe it has something to do with how irritable our two little girls made our two uterus? Just kidding of course. Mostly we do time outs, but it doesn't seem to phase her. And we're just keep trying. I guess eventually they have to stop ((hugs))

Yep. We've got that too. G hits when he gets upset over not getting what he wants. He hits me and he hits Shane. I haven't heard any reports from daycare that he hits there, so he seems to be reserving them fightin' fists for us.
We have a strict "No hitting!" policy which lands him in time out, but we've been doing it for months and he still hits.
And yes, he's an asshole 6/7 days of the week too. That 7th day is a fluke :)

I've got no words of advice. I just keep telling myself that this too shall pass. I mean, it has to. Right?

My two year old bit me ONCE and hit me ONCE. I bit her back and she got a serious butt whooping with time out. I have only had to do those things once for each major event but my son whole different story. Good luck!
