Anyway, her daughter started hitting at around 11 months. now if she doesn't get her she'll resort to hitting ie. if you pick her up, if you try to redirect it, or most disturbing was yesterday a friend's older daughter was following her about five feet behind to keep an eye on her so she wouldn't leave the playground and her daughter actually turned around, walked the distance between her and the older girl and tried to hit her because she knew she was following her. She also hits her dog and cat and also yesterday when her father picked her up she hit him and when he tried to stop her she tried to head butt him! And then when that didn't work she hissed/spit at him.
On top of that, when she doesn't get her way it turns into a major tantrum and she will throw herself on the floor and start hitting her head on the floor even. And forget the car, she screams incessantly in the car now as well.
My friend is at a loss at what to do and I want to know how sheshould handle it as well. Because of me she has become more AP and I want her to keep going.
