A child who is hitting is too furious to think straight. Stop the harm, but don’t necessarily stop the action. The ultimate goal is conflict mediation, but she needs time to be ready. Take care of the burst of adrenaline first . If your child needs to hit, direct the hitting toward a pillow, sofa or other suitable target. This simple act of substitution reinforces the idea that people are not for hitting. After the first raw energy is released, then it’s time to calm down and start talking.
