okay so i'm sure we all have our days where we feel completely frazzled and overwhelmed with being a mom.  Honestly, lately i have been feeling frazzled and completely clueless as to how to deal with Dalan and his hitting spells.  I thought I'd ask all the experts. Do you have any suggestions on what to do when your child(2 yr. old boy, is this a boy thing????) hits you in the face and timeouts don't work(really only make it worse) and ignoring the act seems impossible.  It is obviously an act for attention, but trust me I give him plenty of attention, one on one time, we go somewhere everyday(park, museum, jogging, hiking, swimming etc...)  What happened to my sweet baby boy all of the sudden, maybe the terrible twos kicking in, maybe  i'm doing something totally wrong.  Any ideas?  Have any of your kids gone through a similar stage? Just thought I'd get your thoughts.   Have a great week everyone.  Lore
