I am not opposed to spanking or a hand slap. But in this instance - when I'm trying to teach him NOT to hit - I think that would send a confusing message.
I have tried time outs. That is about the best thing we have going so far. Or at least until he learns how to get out of the playpen. Keeping him in a chair just isn't happening.
I am open to any suggestions as to how to deal with a 19 month old who likes to hit in anger.
