Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I saw your most recent post about this & i hadnt seen this one yet. So your son is just over a year old so i'd say the same ething i figured out with my son at this age. Hes getting a lot more control over his limbs & things so hes using that. If hes frustrated or upset when he hits then id say thats normal. hes at a the age where hes more aware of things but unable to get his way so he throws his arms around. What I did with my son was when hed hit me id gently grab his hand or arm & tell him its not nice to hit in a kinda firm voice. dont yell at him but your slight change of tone in your voice will alert him that your not happy. I hope this helps you like it helps me. Just remember hes old enough to be taught but i wouldnt act like hes in bug trouble. I hope this helps you like it did me.
