Ashlynn has taken up screaming at us and hitting us ... several times a day.

I am a babysitter/nanny and have worked with children for several years, but I have never dealt with something like this from

Megan - sorry to hear that Ashlynn is doing that. No words of wisdom here - Bry's acts are the unintentional not understanding about personal space issues when he accidentally head butts us, steps on our foot etc. Same effect, but totally not the same situation.

Thanks :) I was just doing some random research last night and it seems like a phase that a lot of kids go through between 14 and 16 months. Most of the moms just said that they were telling the child the same things we are telling Ashlynn and that it eventually stops, so I'm praying that this is going to be coming to an end soon. This morning DH was feeding her and she started hitting him in the face for not giving her food fast enough when she was still chewing what he had already given her ! It is more frustrating than anything else.

Hopefully this will just be a short phase!
