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.

Nicole posted September 6, 2021I 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

Shirleen posted October 5, 2021Try finding books to read at bed time on the subject. When the story is over ask open ending question about the book that may reveal the reason for his or her hitting . Questions like why do you think the person in person of main character in the story was hitting ? When do people hit? How do you think hitting makes people feel? Why do you think you hit? Ten be sure to share this information with your behavioral therapist.. I hope this helps .. Projectreachem.org is also a great resource. 0 Likes
