The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 96: Is It Normal for My Kid to Hit?

behavior hitting podcast Jan 26, 2021


Does your toddler hit you or has your child ever hit you? 

It doesn’t make your child bad, and it doesn’t make you a bad parent. But maybe your child is a bit young and he or she hasn’t hit you yet. Expect that eventually it will happen. 

Maybe you’re thinking, “No way. Not my precious sweet baby. She’ll never hit me.” Listen, it’s likely to happen, and it’s okay. Why? Because children are constantly growing and learning and figuring their little worlds out, and hitting is just a typical toddler and child behavior that gets thrown into the mix. 

But that doesn’t mean it has to last long, it doesn’t mean it has to continue, and it doesn’t mean that you just let it happen. However, if you respond in a way that encourages the behavior, you’ll likely see it happen again and again and then it’s a bigger problem for you to deal with. 

So in this episode I’ll tell you exactly how I handle the toddler hitting in my household and how it’s a proven strategy for us… yep, hitting rarely happens in our house. Plus, you’ll get the insider view to why kids could hit in the first place and how you should respond. 

Now, let’s figure out about this hitting, huh? Let’s go to the show!

  • Laura Lynn discusses when hitting is considered normal and when hitting is considered not normal in toddlerhood
  • She explains the four reasons why a chit may hit so you can better understand why your child is doing this unwanted behavior; and
