This 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.
"Connected Parenting advises us not just how to parent, but—far more important—who to be as parents. The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
