In this episode of The Parenting Reframe, we take a deep dive into hitting. We consider why kids are hitting, how to remove judgement toward yourself if you have a child who hits, and practical steps you can take to get them to stop hitting.
Today we reframe what it means when a child resorts to hitting. When you have a child who hits, parents can carry a great deal of shame around this, impacting how you respond to the behavior. Learn how to remove self-judgment and address the behavior from a neutral place.
What I cover:
- Understand what your child is trying to communicate when they hit
- Why they hit
- How to address the behavior without overreacting
- How to come up with a plan to identify your child's specific needs and how you can help them through this phase
- Children are developing and learning. Hitting is a common behavior that many parents struggle with. Tune in to find out simple shifts you can make to help you work through this challenging moment.
