A couple more things that worked for my babies was saying, OucH! that hurts! if they hit while i was holding them i would say we do not hit, if you hit again i will have to put you down...then follow through...if you are playing with them and they hit u, walk away and say i cannot play with you because u hit.

[snip]but when I am giving her boundaries lately, like not holding her on my lap at the computer if she pounds the keyboard, or not letting her hit me, or not letting her dump all of the milk out of her cup, etc...she SCREAMS and continues to scream her most upset scream...it lasts for a minute or two, which is just so long for my happy baby!
Does anyone have any advice? I'm going to try the 'hands' song mentioned above, but I've tried the other things and she is definitely not getting it at this point...is it maybe an age thing?
