How do you get them to stop hitting and get them to listen. I am taking him to a behavioral therapist but unfortunately there is no opening until end of the month. Hoping they can give me suggestions on how to help him with the hitting issues. any suggestions I can try now will be very helpful.

Donna posted September 2I would suggest you observe and see what is happening to make them want to hit you may notice something that can be changed and then go from there. 0 Likes
Nicole posted September 6I would talk with the child face to face and explain how being hit HURTS the person who is being hit. Choose something that hurts that your 3yo can relate to ex: falling down, when a toy falls on his toe etc. so he can grasp the concept of what his action is doing. When he does hit someone or something give him a time-out. They work! I hope this helps a little bit I've done daycare for 11yrs. 0 Likes
