So my 11 month old likes to hit. A lot. He’s been doing it for a few months now and I feel like it’s just getting worse.

When he hits I tell him “we don’t hit” very sternly and he still does it. I’ve even smacked his hand and say no repeatedly and I just feel like nothing is working.

He’s starting to hit our dog and I’m worried one day our dog will get tired of it and my son will get hurt.

Any advice will be helpful. I’m a first time mom and starting to feel overwhelmed.
