5 steps to take to curb hitting

Follow this plan to ensure aggressive behavior doesn’t become a regular habit for your tinybean:
(1) Take action to calmly stop them from striking again (hold their arm for example)

(2) Explain that hitting hurts and we don’t hit people

(3) Use kind words and comforting gestures to let them know that you love them, always, even when they don’t follow the rules

(4) Empathize to show you understand their big feelings

(5) Discuss and model future behavior ( such as “we touch gently; if someone takes your toy away ask me for help instead of hitting”)
