Discipline

Any tips on disciplining my child if she uses physical force on me or anyone else? (she’s only four months but i would like some advice for the future) i never want to have to put my hands on her as punishment. ever. i do not want my child to obey out of fear, any advice would be much appreciated

We say no thank you. But at 4mos when she hurts me i would say a firm no. If she bit me id give her a teether. I would put her down and walk away if it continued. Eventually her physically abusing me makes me completely insane. But try not to react because thats why theyre doing it..to see your reaction.

When my son was young we would take his hands away and tell him no. He would get so pissed off then after a few times he would stop hitting.

If you can try and find the solihul training. It looks at alternatives ways of working with your child and also getting parents to view their child's behavior differently so instead of seeing your child being naughty try looking at what their behavior is trying to say especially when they are young and can't really verbalise how they feel

Many/most kids will try out hitting and throwing or pushing or whatever at some point, remember that even for older kids, they are new here, they don’t have skills to get what they need in many situations and use whatever tools they have (which sometimes can be hitting). We try to really work on recognizing what they are trying to express and helping them get that need met in a more appropriate way (could be so many things, biting can be caused by teething and needing a teether, hitting can be caused by frustration and you can teach them to ask for a turn, depends on the situation. Remember that hitting is pretty normal for kids (not all kids do but many try it out), treat it as a step in learning rather then a huge deal
