Jennifer Kolari Discusses What to Do When Your Toddler Starts to Hit

kolari thumbnailThis week at Kolari’s Corner on InfoMommy, Jennifer Kolari answers a question from a reader whose toddler has started hitting and pushing. Jennifer explains that this type of behavior is common for two-year-olds. She advises that a “you hit you sit” formula can often be effective if you manage to stay neutral, calm and consistent – each time your child hits, you calmly walk them to a designated spot and have them sit out for 2 or 3 minutes. Read Jennifer’s full answer or check out her other advice at Kolari’s Corner.
