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.

Keep reinforcing that hitting is wrong.  It sounds silly to spank a little one for hitting, not that I haven't done it, but the concept is silly.  If time outs work for you, do those.  Just keep working at it, really that's probably the only thing you can do.  Let your tons and mannerisms dictate that it is wrong...strongly enforce NO!
