    I also agree that at this age they may not know time out concept and end up rocking their chair at the corner or playing afool and that's itself is frustrating. My DS1 did just that when he got timed out at that age.

    But I agree setting up a porta cot/play pen solely for the time out is a great idea. At least you can confine the child. Put it at one very boring corner and give him/her 1.5-2 minutes depending on age. Make it very clear to her that hitting isn't acceptable, put him/her in, time, go back to him/her, chat about it and bring him/her to the 'victim', give the victim a gentle rub on the face to teach him/her about being gentle.

    I am not sure though if the child can climb out. If he or she screams the house down I will still let her stay there till time is up.

    Watch Supernanny? Should be pretty useful?

    How about closing the whole thing by making her say sorry and give the hurt person a cuddle and pat?

    My pair are older now and don't hit anymore but if they did they would go to the "calm down" or "thinking corner".
    If they're throwing a tanty they go to calm down, if they've done something naughty they go to the thinking corner to think about what they've done.

    At that age though if they hit we would say "No! Hitting hurts and it's not nice." Then turn away from them and ignore them. They didn't like it and it soon stopped.

    I love the SuperNanny technique of time out and will be using it in the future but I don't think it works for the under 2's they just don't understand. Plus mine isn't talking much yet so "saying sorry" doesn't work either.

    My DD is 26 months and we have started time out for hitting, she goes straight on the naughty chair which she doesn't move from and cries so she definately knows she's in trouble. Afterwards I make her say sorry and tell her why we don't hit. She understands for sure.

    Do you know you can easily teach your girl to use sign language for sorry? They can sign even if they can't talk. That's what my DS1 did.

    It's certainly reassuring to know so many kids seems to go through this. Thanks for all the suggestions/experiences.

    I also asked a friend of mine today who has 2 kids and she said that when her DS went through this stage they would tell him "no, hitting hurts people and it's not allowed" then get her DS to end the interaction on a positive note, like a hug or a high five. I kind of like this approach because DD doesn't talk much yet and has no concept of saying sorry!

    I might try the timeout too if it's particularly bad.
